In this talk, Colm delves into the area of regenerative organic vegetable production and shares the most environmentally sustainable approach to growing vegetables. Learn how to reduce your inputs, cut your labour and reap the rewards while enhancing the environment. Unsurprisingly soil health is at the forefront of the talk with a particular focus on improving healthy soil which translates to healthy vegetables. Colm also gives an insight into his vegetable seed production experience and discusses the benefits of locally grown Irish seed. Drawing on over 10 years of vegetable growing experience in Airfield Estate and Lismore Castle, Colm shares a variety of recommendations for some of the tastiest vegetables he has grown.
