Get Diggy With The Vege Cowboy


Workshop Description:

Throughout this entertaining , informative and possibly off the cuff talk / workshop, you will be dazzled and hopefully inspired by expert ‘worm tickler’ Jordan Sly of Worm ticklers Nursery.  In this talk he will share his knowledge, tips and expertise to help you grow your own produce ,herbs, flowers, veggies and greens at home on your balcony or in the workplace using permaculture principles and organic techniques. From propagating seeds & building healthy soils to growing with the seasons, staged planting, worm farming and companion planting. You will have plenty of time to discuss and design your potential growing space with Jordan. 


Larrikin green thumb, Jordan Sly, has turned his passion for organic food into a growing business, Worm ticklers Nursery. Spending time with his grandfather and having his own “serious” veggie patch by the time he was eight he has come full circle and into his element.

Jordan completed a Permaculture Design Certificate and was among 19 Australians celebrated in the documentary ‘The Inspiring Story of Us’.  He regularly appears on the TODAY show as their resident guru gardener.


  • “I had such an incredible time at Lost Paradise – it was a wonderfully unique experience. Thanks again for the opportunity to attend Lost Paradise – it was one of the best festivals I’ve attended in Australia and a fabulous start to the year.”

    Sophie Dellagiacoma – Australian Traveller Magazine

  • “I had such a good time at Lost Paradise! It’s one of the coolest festivals I’ve been to. I loved playing the Lost Disco stage, the atmosphere was wicked, the decoration was class and the lit up signs the crowd brought with them, added to it too.

    After my set I went on the dancefloor with a few of my mates and saw the new year in listening to Jackmaster & Jasper James, was a memorable new year!”

    – Patrick Topping
  • “Lost Paradise was a totally unique festival, nothing like it in Australia. Thank you to everyone who made it such a beautiful place.”

  • “The thing that really makes this festival shine is without a doubt the sheer variety of acts in that world class lineup. Dense, ambitious, and not afraid to throw in a few curve balls, Lost Paradise is much more than your average doof, but a playground for all, no matter what your age or musical alignment.”

  • “After Boomtown in England this is definitely the second festival with the craziest stuff”

    – M.I.A.
  • “One of the most magical spots we’ve ever played in Oz and a night complimented by generous staff and hospitality that really looked after us. A show we’ll never forget”

  • “My favourite view from stage in the world. Doof sticks and the Australian bush, insane energy.”
    – Willaris. K
  • “Re-awaken your sense of wanderlust and adventure with the festival’s secret hideaways, glittering late night discos, and inspirational art and performance”

    No1 NYE 2017/8 Event in the World – Buzzfeed
  • As 2018 became 2019, I found myself feeling sorry for all my Sydney pals couped up in clubs and bad house parties. But also, not really. When you’ve got a festival like Lost Paradise waiting for you just down the road, why on earth would you spend your New Year’s anywhere else?”

    – Hhhappy – Bill Robinson
  • “A picturesque setting in Glenworth Valley forest, a flowing river that hugged the venue and camping grounds, and one of the most characterfully constructed settings of any festival this side of the Pacific, Lost Paradise curates its New Year celebrations in the same way it curates its lineup: with weird and wonderful indulgence.”
