During his Army educator career John had his heart in growing tasty and nutritious food. Principally a geography teacher, he always maintained a productive vegetable garden and dreamed about his return to the land. Equipped with skills in farming and grazing from his younger days on farms around Glen Innes, as well as beekeeping, humus gardening and permaculture, he eventually settled on the Dorrigo plateau in 1993, where he applied the biodynamic preparations, paramagnetic basalt crusher dust and TLC to his polyculture, with spectacular results. John is an integral part of Biodynamic Agriculture’s team as the Co-Editor of our News Leaf magazine and a presenter at our Australia wide workshops sharing his invaluable knowledge with all who want to listen.
In this one and a half hour video you will be taken on an inspired journey into compost-making. John’s observations and insights, through his career working with nature, leads us to a cornucopia of compost creation. For the viewer our minds are opened in ways you could never have imagined. I don’t think I will ever be able to look at a compost heap the same way ever again!
