You are herby invited to the 3rd Permaculture Session of Yada Workshops: 🌱 *"Seedlings & Propagation"* 🌱on Friday, the 13th of April!
*We will be visiting Langkloof Roses Farm,* outside Wellington with our presenter, *Kobus Kritzinger* and participate in a hands-on workshop about seedlings and propagation.
*Seedlings and Propagation:*
1) What are heirloom, open-pollinated and hybrid seeds?
2) Planting by the season.
Special attention will be given to winter crops that should be sown/planted now.
3) Sowing seeds with success.
What is sown directly into beds, seed trays or containers?
4) Collecting and storing seeds in your own garden.
Other good sources of seed.
5) Cloning: cuttings and layering.
*About the presenter of the Permaculture workshops*
Kobus Kritzinger is a permaculture designer who has immersed himself in the practice of teaching and designing ecological systems that are sustainable and productive. He provides consultation and implementation services to clients who want to make the shift from consumer to producer on whatever land they have available: be it a patio, backyard, small-holding or farm. He considers himself a lifelong learner who is continually in awe of nature’s ability and strategies to restore balance.
*Overview of the Permaculture Workshops and Aim*
Permaculture is a design science that is concerned with the energy that it takes to produce and deliver food to our tables. Healthy ecosystems are the only truly sustainable sources of energy – energy from the sun captured and stored in various forms that can be harvested at any stage or last through the ages. The sessions that we undertake this year explore practical ways in which to work with nature to restore balance to the ecosystems around us while tweaking it to become more productive for us. It is a journey into a deeper understanding of nature’s means of production, and away from factory farmed produce devoid of nutritional and ethical substance.
