Graeme Sait, Nutri-Tech Solutions
NTS CEO and co-founder, Graeme Sait, is an author/educator responsible for over 300 published articles and is an internationally sought-after speaker, specialising in soil, plant, animal and human health. He also has a popular podcast series called ‘Nutrition Farming’ that is designed for food producers seeking to increase the nutrient density, flavour and quality of their produce, whilst decreasing reliance on chemical inputs. At this event, Graeme will present an overview of soil health, including the interplay between minerals and microbes. There are a variety of options for farmers to ‘make their own microbes’ on farm – vermicomposting is one of those methods and a working demonstration worm farm can be seen on the night.
