Mad About Dirt @ Narara Valley High School
May 11 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Calling all dirt- and soil- worshippers, cultivators, regenerators, composters and mud-lovers!

Date: Saturday May 11 2019, 10 am to 4 pm. Put this not-to-missed event in your
2019 dairy now.

Narara Eco Living Network will present a fun and informative day dedicated to “dirt” (mainly soil!).

  • A day that celebrates the vitality and importance of soil-the living carpet we take for
    granted, totally rely on, and which we are losing much too fast!
  • A day of very practical information: soil science and analysis (testing and tasting!),
    composting and worm farms, permaculture and regenerative agriculture, chemistry
    and biology, and getting your hands into dirt.

Talks, demonstrations, hands-on experiences, and opportunities to talk with experts. Presenters include ABC television personalities Angus Stewart and Tino Carnevale, Simon Leake ( SESL, soils author), Prof. Mark Taylor (MacQuarie University), Peter Bacon (Woodlots and Wetlands), Permaculture experts and more.

Venues: Narara Valley High School and Narara Ecovillage, Narara, NSW 2250.
