Growing healthy food starts with making healthy soil.

Turn your garden into a healing sanctuary packed full of food and flowers, all grown in healthy soil.

How would you like to be growing the food you most love to eat, saving yourself unnecessary trips out to the shops. Instead, just wander out into your garden and harvest organic produce that is literally still alive. Garden to table means just that - perhaps rinsing off a little of the soil before you head to the kitchen to cook. 

Where to start? 

The weekly email is full of tips for gardening by the moon, and there lots of online options to choose from.

Workshops - Book now for Autumn

Blue Borage workshops cover a range of topics in edible gardening, all grounded in biodynamic approaches, with no artificial chemicals:

  • Make your own seed raising mix and potting mix
  • Discover the lost art of growing food from seeds 
  • Growing your own microgreens and salad greens — even if you haven’t got a garden
  • Eat beautiful meals garnished with edible flowers 
  • Start transforming your green waste into biodynamic compost

When workplaces build edible gardens, these can become classrooms for a large group to learn in: your staff, your clients, or guests you invite to come and learn. Composting and growing food at work is a fabulous way to demonstrate your dedication to a circular economy. Contact Katrina by email to discuss your requirements.
