Hooray! The Big Patch has been cleared.

We have been waiting for some time for the main growing space to be cleared of an olive grove. And a few weeks ago the olive grove ware finally cleared! …

Over the past couple of weeks, we had the soil ripped and we added approx. 3 tonnes of a blend of gypsum, lime, humate, carbon and an organic bio fertiliser. This was to repair the soil’s cation exchange potential and to boost soil microbiology.
