Upcoming Club Events

Monthly Function – Saturday 1st June 2024

Guest Speaker – Bruce Ham

Soil is so much more than “dirt” – soil is alive!

Every teaspoon of soil is home to billions of microorganisms – bacteria, fungi, nematodes, and more – as well as larger organisms like insects and earthworms. All of these organisms have a role to play in the soil ecosystem.

A healthy soil ecosystem provides plants with easy access to air, water, and nutrients. Bruce Ham is a contract organic gardener with qualifications in horticulture, engineering, geology, and health science.

Bruce has served as president of Brisbane Organic Growers, made presentations to garden clubs, the Queensland Herb Society, and the National Landcare Australia Conference.

On Saturday, Bruce will speak on “Plant Nutrition and Soil Health”.
