Regenerative Growing Part 6 - Winter crops Wild food and foraging. Seed saving. Using green manures and what to feed our gut for our immune system.
Part 6 - 24th September 2022 - Mabon – Autumn Equinox. The descent of the sun.
Soil - Winter crops, harvesting and preserving. Wild food and foraging. Seed saving and sharing. Using green manures.
Soul - Night and day are again of equal length and in perfect equilibrium - dark and light, masculine and feminine, inner and outer all in balance. But we are again on the cusp of the transition to Autumn. The sap of trees returns back to their roots deep in the earth, changing the green of summer to the fire of autumn, to the flaming reds, oranges and golds. We are returning to the dark from whence we came. It’s the time to start thinking of our immune systems again and what to feed them to build up our winter defences. We will learn how to prepare and what to eat to cultivate the good bacteria in our gut just as we prepare the soil. We will enjoy a lunch from the this seasons soil offerings cooked over the fire.
9.30 - 15.30 - Rocket and Russet Fang Foss.

Whether you are a complete novice, or a seasoned gardener we will be exploring a wide range of topics across the year. From soil health and why it matters to seed sowing and propagation.
Jan and our guest speakers will take you through our regenerative growing ethos where soil and gut biodiversity is at the heart of all we grow. Polly will take you through the foods we are growing to give you understanding their health benefits, what to cook with them and how to preserve their goodness through the seasons.
This is a truly regenerative series. With a strong emphasis on organic no dig and permaculture techniques, each workshop explores different seasonal tasks in the garden, which will enable you to grow a wide range of healthy food, which will benefit both your own health and that of the land.
The workshops can be taken as individual sessions or as complete food growing course. Each workshop will include feasting from the fire and a chance to cook with Polly as well as plenty of advice and practical practice.
This course will bust a lot of myths around growing your own food and really show you the joy that can be found in rewilding your patch and embracing nature.

Polly Baldwin - Gut health and regenerative wellbeing expert. Founder of Jolly Allotment and Retreat Fire Cook. Polly regenerated her own health through food and nourishment when she was told there was nothing modern medicine could offer her to improve her debilitating symptoms. So she turned to natures medical cabinet and the soil for help. She now speaks, cooks and shares her knowledge to help others improve their own physical and emotional health through good food and reconnecting with their primal human needs.
There will also be surprise guest speakers at some of our workshops.
