Johnny Evolution led a pack of keeners around Djanbung Gardens  on his Magical Soil Tour.


“We kicked off the year hear at Djanbung Gardens in mid February and were handed a space for student plots.

It was now time to start thinking about growing food after scratching my head for a while I realised that it helps to have soil to plant into.

This is were my adventure started I decided it could be a great idea to make some compost and started with clearing up an area and made a bay system to get some soil production happenning.

After I had the bays set up and got a couple of composts on the go, I was descovering diferent methods to apply to different conditions and circumstances.

Once I had been observing and interacting with the surrounding gardens and orchards I was witnessing miracles and restoration automatically happening around us.  After turning my composts a few times I realised there was a huge PARTY in the soil.

Now I know what I can do for Open Day –  I’ll just show people some the cool magical personality of soil then I’ll finish with a raging soil party in the student composting area.

So that’s what happened!

If you weren’t here, there was an epic shin-dig going down out the back of the student gardens:

  • There was the worms getting all squiggly and making worm juice cocktails in the wheel barrow
  • There were some gang wars of microorganisimal activity happening in the compost pile
  • The earth stewards were mingling keenly with all
  • whilst the earth worms were trying to chill below while the stewards were stomping and making a racket above.

The party ended quickly when alll the organisims involved heard that Phil was giving hot tips on how to store more beer in your fridge.
