WPCLN Organic Vegie/Fruit Growers Discussion Group by Zoom

May 19, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

All group participants are welcome to attend our first ‘virtual’ farm walk!

Unfortunately as a group we currently can’t meet in a physical sense, so in this interim period we will meet ‘on-line’ to keep us connected, and to support & learn from each other! 

So how will this work?

We are videoing a group participant & the host farmer will take us on a farm walk & talk about their farm! The 15-20 minute video will be put on YouTube & then a few days later we will have an online chat (with Zoom) to ask the farmer questions, see each other & share how we are all managing.

Our first farm walk is with Wendy at Gawler Foundation.

Wendy & Ben grow organic vegetables on 1 acre along with a poly tunnel to feed the participants attending the retreat who are profoundly challenged by illnesses such as cancer, Parkinsons disease & Multiple Sclerosis. Wendy will show us the gardens and also discusses challenges she has faced such as nutgrass control on organic farms. This is a great video & Wendy’s passion & love for organic farming shines through. Enjoy!

TIP: I will be on Zoom from 1:15pm. If you havent used Zoom before, I suggest you click the Zoom link at 1:15pm in case you have issues.  When you click on the link a little popup will appear. Click on “Open Zoom Meetings” and then the program will start in a few seconds. You will then see me on your screen. It is quite easy to do.

Zoom will work on your computer/smartphone/tablet.
If you don’t have this technology, then you can dial in with your phone by calling the number and entering the password provided in the email I sent group participants.
