Bob and I (Kay) have just finished 12 months of eating only our own food, not buying anything from the supermarket at all except for salt (from health supplier) and a handful of organic imported spices. It was actually fairly easy and we have no intention of changing back to the supermarket, only going forward from here.
We have been on this site for 3 years and the soil was very poor pumice based soil to begin with.
We have built it up using fertiliser based on the work of Dr Carey Reams and lots of our own amazing compost, as well as recently added clay! (to increase the cation exchange capacity, and speed up the process of soil building)
We combine Biointensive methods with Biological Agriculture and achieve outstanding results. See Kay’s garden blog for more details.
This year we are going to keep a careful track of everything that goes in and out of this garden, including the brix levels, and publish that in my monthly garden blogs. We’re still learning a lot from our garden, and loving every minute in it…
If the idea of growing all your own food sounds exciting you should definitely consider attending one of our upcoming courses!
