The Secrets of REMIN volcanic rock dust – Jennifer Brodie

Many thanks for your interest in the Rockdust talk, unfortunately we are having to postpone this to later in the year. 
Our apologies, and we look forward to welcoming Jennifer to Benderloch in the future.

Scotland’s ancient volcanic rock, 360 millions year old ancient, can it really benefit our soils, our plants, our environment, our health and our climate?   Come along and hear how many of these secrets Jennifer has managed to uncover both by using it herself and marketing and selling it around the world.   As well as giving the background and sharing many of the results she has witnessed, Jennifer will provide a good run down on how to make the best use of REMIN volcanic rock dust during 2019 and beyond

Victory Hall, Benderloch :  7 pm
Jennifer is taking a diversion on her way home to give us this talk. 
THIS TALK IS FREE, and open to all.

We will only hold your information to be able to notify you of future talks / workshops on permaculture, soils, crafting, crofting. We will never pass anything to others.


We no longer host working holidays or vet students sadly. My fibromyalgia means that I cannot give what is needed to give folks a good welcome and a full learning experience.
It is important that people who gave their time to help us, also got a lot back in the way of hospitality, and experience. This is mostly a wonderful symbiotic relationship, but it IS hard work for both sides. Hosts need hard work on the holding, and “teaching” all the time is inspiring but draining.

If anyone locally would like to join in here for the odd afternoon to get some fresh air, to understand more of what we are doing, and to make a positive difference to the Living Larders we are creating.. we have lots going on that would benefit from more man / woman power.
