Save the dates: November 6th to the 10th cultivate will be at Camp Obadiah!
A seventy-five acre rural getaway located four hours north of Sydney on the beautiful mid-north coast of New South Wales, Australia. With direct access to the Pacific Highway midway between the major regional centers of Taree and Port Macquarie.
The four main learning streams will be:
A. Country Living (to inspire and equip those either already living in the country, or planning to - a variety of subjects including general country living skills, and Landscaping)
B. Vegetable Production / Market Gardening (whether you are a home gardener seeking self-sufficiency as much as possible, or planning on making an income as a market gardener or similar, this will be profitable for you)
C. Fruit Growing / Orcharding (as with B, this stream will be useful on the family or business scale, but with more of a focus on produce from trees)
D. Soil Health / Restoration (who needs to improve their soil? This will also be of great benefit, small or large scale, whether your soil is great [but how long will that last?], or whether it is poor).
Speakers will include Darren Greenfield (Weimar Institute Farm USA), Sheldon Vincent (NZ farmer), Rod Bailey (Market Gardener NSW), Jeremy Price (Orchardist from WA), Ian Mot (Agronomist, VIC), and Justin Epps (Landscape gardener, NSW).
As well as the specific learning streams, there will be keynote talks for the whole group, in keeping with the Cultivate movement towards spiritual revival and drawing nearer to God through discovering His original design for our lives.
There will also be question and answer forums, and opportunity for fellowship at various times.
The Sabbath of course will be a highlight day, a day to relax and reflect, to be inspired with encouraging words, and with the beauties of nature.
