The name can be misleading but green manure is actually very good for your home vegetable garden.  Green manure is a cover crop grown to add nutrients and organic matter to the soil.  

For tips and hints about how you can keep your garden productive and healthy year after year, why not attend one of the free Green Manure and Crop Rotation sessions being held throughout Sunshine Coast Libraries over the coming month?

Presenter Sonya Wallace from Permaculture Pathways will help attendees understand the benefits of rotating food crops through their home veggie gardens and how green manure can be used to manage soil fertility, soil quality, water, weeds, pests, diseases, biodiversity and wildlife.

Sonya has been working as a permaculture designer and educator since 2005 collaborating with others to create places where people can live sustainably, grow nutritious food, learn new skills, connect, share, co-operate and work together.

Try green manure and your veggie garden will love you
