We invited newcomers to Oberon and some ‘old timers’! The guest speaker was Horst Sjostedt an Oberon tomato grower using hydroponics.
Horst Sjostedt gave an enthralling talk about hydroponic tomato growing, and why he came to Oberon to do it. He had previously grown them in his native Sweden, then in Portugal (too cold in winter in Sweden) then in Warragul in Victoria, then to Oberon – because of the amount of light, purity of the water and labour. This technical stuff was mingled with a smooth banter about looking after his “Red ladies:” for the “Lovely ladies” ; He shared his vast knowledge, experience and enthusiasm in a great presentation – Thanks Horst.
