Koanga Gardening Online Masterclass

$700.00

This online masterclass contains 5 comprehensive workshops integrated into one extremely in-depth, practical and insightful masterclass which has been designed over many decades by Kay Baxter.

Kay is the co-founder of The Koanga Institute and ReGeneration productions, she is a pioneer of the permaculture movement in New Zealand and creating regenerative local food production systems. Kay is a heritage seed saver and best selling author.

Through this masterclass Kay’s goal is to support and empower home-gardeners and small scale commercial gardeners to grow nutrient dense food in the most efficient and regenerative way possible.

The masterclass is a blue print for creating family and community health , food security and self reliance as well as ecological regeneration.

In order to support you to put all this in depth learning into practice, when you buy the masterclass as a whole we will be sending you a series of garden management videos broken down into monthly episodes.
There will be 12 episodes from Kays garden and 12 episodes from the ReGeneration Productions urban garden. These series are designed to show you what to expect each month and what various challenges might be and how to meet them.

The additional monthly video instalments from both Kays Garden and the urban garden contain not only a whole lot of invaluable practical information but a large amount of inspiring garden tips, ideas, recipe suggestions, garden sights and seasonal knowledge.

This workshop comes with a huge database containing publications, graphs, informational charts, building and design instructions, garden planning templates and in depth videos.

Who is this course for?

 This course is for people who want to know how to be a part of creating a regenerative future. 

 This course is an opportunity for anyone interested in investing in their education, the health of their family and the future of the planet. 

If you’re frustrated with the current industrial and or degenerative food system this course will give you the knowledge to create a regenerative system on both a home gardening level and a small scale commercial level. 

If you’re a home gardener growing food without any regenerative practices in place, you can unwittingly be growing your food in a degenerative way without knowing, this course will give you the in-depth knowledge to turn your garden into a regenerative gardening system. 

This course is also for home gardeners as it demonstrates how you can grow the maximum production in the most efficient way possible in terms of water, space, fertiliser, land and other resources. 

Our bio-intensive system is also specifically tailored to people with minimal resources and land. 

This course is also for people who want to give their families the best possible nutrient dense food for health reasons. 

This course is also for people who want to become completely self reliant. 

This course is well designed for both country and urban gardeners. 

CLIMATE: The workshops are based around giving people an understanding of the principals of science and the laws of nature which can be applied in varying ways to any climate. In our videos we are specifically showing people how to apply these rules in a temperate climate.

6. BONUS WORKSHOP – BUILDING A PASSIVE SOLAR CLOCHE

“Building a Passive Solar Cloche” is our first appropriate technology and earth building course, produced in parternship with Bob Corker, Co-founder of Koanga and of ReGen Productions. This is a step by step bio-architecture workshop on how to design and build a simple and effective Passive Solar Cloche. After many years of designing and building Solar Cloches, Bob shares with us his Master-Piece. Using appropriate technology and local materials Bob builds a brilliant low-budget structure which uses sunlight and thermal storage techniques to enable the ReGen Urban Gardening Team to grow high-quality seedlings and other plants in cold seasons and give their garden a great early start. All you need is a moderate amount of sun to keep it warm, even if outside air temperatures are still too low for good growth. You can use the general principles outlined here, and match this with the materials you have available. At Koanga we’ve built these structures for as little as $80 NZD by using recycled material!
