This year we are continuing our regular webinars on all sorts of farming topics as part of a programme provided to our members, allowing us to continue educating through Covid-19 restrictions.
|TITLE||ROOTS SHOOTS AND FRUITS|
|HOST||Molly Callaghan & Janette Perrett|
|DATE||Tuesday 12th April 2022|
“Our mission at Roots, Shoots & Fruits is to support New Zealand growers to produce quality, nutrient dense food. By growing healthier more resilient plants we can reduce costs and also reduce reliance on synthetic fungicides, pesticides and fertilisers that can be harmful to humans and the environment.”
I would like to introduce another of ODPG’s fabulous sponsors ‘Roots, Shoots & Fruits’.
I must admit not knowing about their products and the amazing people behind them. I clicked on the website via our Suppliers Page and found Roots, Shoots & Fruits cater for everyone, the home gardener as well as farmers. I also discovered their Rootella product was named Organic Non-food Product of the Year 2021. We extend our congratulations.
The building blocks behind their products are mycorrhizal fungi, humates and bio-organisms. These are the invisible workers in our soils who were owe our very existence to. A lot of their value is still being put under the microscope.
On Tuesday April 12th @ 7.30pm Molly will tell us more about their company and expand on the important role of humates.
Hope you are all able to join us.
