FERTILISING OUR BIODYNAMIC FARM ORCHARD WITH FISH STEW
We are fortunate to have access to fish scraps from the Tea Gardens Fisherman's Co Op. The fish are from the pristine waters off Hawks Nest and Port Stephens. The fish scraps are put into stainless steel tanks, along with water, enzymes and Biodynamic Preps. The mixture is left for approximately six months and then sprayed out around the trees to the drip-line in the orchard and the solids are then added around the base of the trees. This is done once a year. (It is also sprayed on the garlic rows before we plant the garlic in April.) Special disposable suits are worn as it is really on the nose!
