Homeopathy for the Garden. Workshop – Sat 6th October ’12


Homeopathy for the Garden. Workshop in Donnybrook, Dublin 4.
Saturday 6th October ’12 10.30am to 3pm – €50 fee.

Meadow Grasses
Would you like a pest-free garden full of robust, productive plants?
Would you like to achieve this affordably, sustainably and without toxicity?

Come to a practical workshop exploring the theory and practice of Homeopathy for the Garden with Mark O’Sullivan, homeopath. Learn how to use the remedies that here in the garden we’ve used successfully against slugs, sawfly and aphids.

Learn how to select, prepare and apply appropriate Homeoapthic remedies that:

  • repel slugs, beetles, larvae and other pests in a safe, effective, non-toxic manner.
  • – heal fungal and bacterial diseases
  • – balance nutrient excesses & deficiencies
  • – restore damaged or traumatised plants and soils

Mark has been applying Homeopathy for gardens since 2007 and teaches this across the country, including at the Organic Centre, Leitrim. When not treating people at the Dublin Holistic Centre, Mark studies organic gardening at the Heritage Community Garden and qualified as a Permaculture designer with Rob Hopkins in 2004.

Here at the Heritage Community Garden, we’ve used Homeopathic remedies to rid our gooseberry bushes, that were almost destroyed, of a sawfly infestation. Our 200yr old apple and pear trees, that were brutally pruned and badly mistreated have been reviatalised by the application of remedies and our bean shoots were saved from the slugs by the remedy Helix Tosta.
