Year 8 Biodynamic Gardening – Tree Pasting

Tree-Pasting

Tree pasting is a process of mixing manure, sand, clay and water and applying it to the trunk and branches of trees which carries out a similar function to that of compost spread on the ground. It also nourishes and protects the bark and cambium of tress and vines and has the effect of sealing over crevices which pests may attack.

Last week we had the pleasure of hosting expert Biodynamic Gardening teacher Sandra Frain with a tree pasting workshop. She brings wonderful energy to the class with a wealth of knowledge. It was an inspiring workshop to see the students get into the process of applying medicine to trees.
