You can find out more about Green Vegetable Seeds here.
Climate-Smart Gardening will give practical tips on how to improve your soil fertility, make good compost and thus bring the carbon back into the soil where it belongs. Few people realise that atmospheric carbon can be brought into soils. We’ll also explore some ways in how conventional food production causes climate change – soy bean production equals rainforest destruction. There will also be tips on how to improve the biodiversity in your garden.
This talk forms part of Green Foundation Ireland’s project,
“Our Soil Underfoot – Protecting our underground life”.
