The National Soil Advocate Major General Michael Jeffery visited Freeman’s Organic Farm at Currumbin Valley, Qld, on Tuesday 30 July 2019. David Freeman grows an abundance of green nutrient-dense organic vegetables and tropical fruits. David says, “I’m very interested in the health of my soil, which translates into nutrient-dense food and better health.”
Today, the former banana farm demonstrates significant improvements to soil health. With improved hydrology the farm is now rich in organic matter with a neutral pH, providing optimum conditions for a diverse range of healthy plants.
Former Governor-General Michael Jeffery observes that the old tennis court is now an expansive organic vegetable patch. David maintains an ambition to, “Leave the farm in a better state than I found it.”
