SAGE (NSW) at Stepping Stone Farm are now offering a series of informal, stimulating, afternoon seminars on the first and third Friday of every month.
These afternoon gardening dips are filled with valuable tips with the aim to build on and share the substantial, collective body of knowledge about vegetable growing, market gardening and organic farming that exists in Moruya. Everyone is welcome, our interns, total gardening novices and experienced growers.
We have put together a long list of seasonally appropriate topics and hope to cover a lot of material over the next year. It is envisaged that participants will come with their own questions and wisdom and the program for the first quarter of 2024 will reflect issues that come up in discussion over the next few months.
The first seven seminars will be convened by Joyce Wilkie who will share her knowledge and also give everyone who attends an opportunity to talk about their experiences.

The best thing about growing food is that it is a mountain without a top - nature has a way of humbling even the most accomplished market gardeners and teaching us all that we still have a lot more to learn.
