YEAR 8- BIODYNAMIC GARDENING – TREE PASTINGTree-Pasting

” Tree pasting is a process of mixing manure, sand, clay and water and applying it to the trunk and branches of trees which carries out a similar function to that of compost spread on the ground. It also nourishes and protects the bark and cambium of trees and vines and has the effects of sealing over crevices which pests may attack.

Last week we had the pleasure of hosting expert Biodynamic Gardening teacher Sandra Frain with a tree pasting workshop. She brings wonderful every to the class with a wealth of knowledge. It is an inspiring workshop to see the students get into the process of applying medicine to trees.” – Peter Palmer
