Turning the Tennis Court into Trail Plots for Soil Nutrition
The National Soil Advocate Major General Michael Jeffery visited Freeman’s Organic Farm at Currumbin Valley, Qld, on Tuesday 30 July 2019. David Freeman
grows an abundance of green nutrient-dense organic vegetables and tropical fruits. David says, “I’m very interested in the health of my soil, which
translates into nutrient-dense food and better health.”
Today, the former banana farm demonstrates significant improvements to soil health. With improved hydrology the farm is now rich in organic matter with a neutral pH, providing optimum conditions for a diverse range of healthy plants.
Former Governor-General Michael Jeffery observes that the old tennis court is now an expansive organic vegetable patch. David maintains an ambition to, “Leave the farm in a better state than I found it.”
