The education spot during the July Working Bee was conducted by Fraser, who explained and demonstrated the use of lime sulphur and Bordeaux spray mixes. He has kindly put together this comprehensive information for everyone’s reference.
This education spot was conducted by Walter Kohler about insects — what they are and how to control them — particularly in the orchard. Below is some of the information Walter shared with everyone as we walked through our fledgeling orchard.
On a perfect autumn day, about 30 SAGE members and friends drove through the dirt roads of the Deua National Park to a wonderful farm on the Deua River.
The property is the Home of Michael and Wendy Hulse. Michael is one of the founders of the SAGE project and is a hands on farmer.
There was so much to see and do that we all felt both enthused by the projects under way and some were a little overwhelmed at the scale of Michael’s vision.
