LOWERLAND - Saturday, 20th August 6pm

Lowerland’s vision is to produce a basket full of natural, nutritious and wholesome products by working with nature.

 

Diversity in the basket reflects biodiversity and health of the soil and the farm.

 

Farming sustainably and regeneratively with a focus on perennial species, Lowerland explores and demonstrates resilient solutions, on a small and large scale, to agricultural issues in the context of climate change and geopolitical challenges.

 

‘We want to contribute to social and environmental regeneration through creating a safe, prosperous and environmentally regenerative farm which serves this and future generations. We hope to inspire, teach and capacitate others to do the same, while contributing to a healthy food system’, Bertie Coetzee.

FARMER ANGUS - Saturday, 3rd September 6pm

Farmer Angus is a grass fed, pasture-reared beef producer on Spier Wine Farm.


Biodynamic and regenerative agricultural principles and practices are applied in the raising of the farm’s animals which includes cattle, pigs and laying hens, as well as vegetables and wine.


Farmer Angus focuses on understanding the fine balance between how we harness the earth and what it gives us; the natural-state pastures that grow back healthily by rotating animals and allowing them to roam freely and the nutrients that are put back into the soil, so that plants and animals are raised 100% naturally: not adding any hormones, antibiotics, artificial preservatives or glyphosates to any part of the process.

SPIER FOOD GARDEN - Saturday, 17th September 6pm

One hectare of an old horse paddock has been transformed into a thriving food garden where Megan McCarthy and her team grow delicious and nutrient-rich produce using eco-friendly and regenerative techniques.


No inorganic pesticides or artificial fertilisers are used in the Spier food garden. Instead, much effort is spent ensuring the soil is healthy so that the plants have a robust immune system to withstand attacks by pests. Worm compost and weekly foliar sprays (a natural form of fertiliser) boost nutrients. Alien vegetation removed from other parts of the farm has been chipped and turned into compost; this has helped ensure the food garden’s soil is now rich with microbial activity.


“Regenerative farming goes beyond sustainability,” says Megan. “It means leaving the space in a better state than how you found it, as opposed to simply maintaining the status quo. The high number of diverse crops and indigenous plants in and around the garden means that should we ever walk away from the space, nature would comfortably return through the pioneering, soil-restorative practices that have already been put in place.” Megan McCarthy
