Greg and Taryn Baker have a 16 acre off-grid property in the hills north-east of Mansfield.  At 780m they get some snow in winter and a shorter growing season than lower country. Starting out with a goal of growing as much of their own food as they could and a stop-start beginning to biodynamics, they now milk a cow, enjoy home grown beef and chicken and as many veggies as they can grow. Berries do well and the fruit trees are a hit-and-miss affair. They recently began growing veggies to sell locally, however couldn’t have chosen a more challenging winter and spring to kick-off.

This field day is aimed at small growers and gardeners.

Time: 9.30am arrival for a 10am start, finish around 3-3.30pm. Set aside the full day in order to meet the practical requirements for membership of BDGA.

Bring: BYO lunch, chair, work boots, wet weather gear (just in case) and a good garden fork for compost building! Tea, coffee and morning tea will be provided.

Stirring and storage equipment will be demonstrated and available for sale on the day.
