Grow course from the soil to the sky

Introduce Yourself

Hi I live in a small collective with other growers and craftspeople. We are all interested in using permaculture principles to grow our plants and food. For a living I grow cutflowers and am keen to look after the soil I exploit so need to learn as possible about soil. Have just started the GROW course from the soil to the sky.

Hi Lucinda, Your community of growers and craft people sounds wonderful. It is great to hear of people securing a livelihood form the land. It seems like cut flowers would compliment food production and both need healthy soils.

The next MOOC that starts on April 16th - Citizen Science: Living Soils, Growing Food. In that one you will explore key approaches to food growing that can help improve soil degradation, regenerate soils and ecosystems, identify regenerative practices that you could use in your own growing site, and design a robust research experiment to evaluate them. https://medium.com/grow-observatory-blog/sign-up-for-our-next-free-online-courses-sensors-and-living-soils-59ec623790f2
