Dirt on Dirt

May 5, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am


Healthy soil makes healthy plants.  Whether you’re planning a summer veggie garden (no it’s not too late), flowers, herbs or pollinator plants, you want healthy plants without toxins. 

This all ages, hands-on class addresses the basics of getting your soil healthy.  We’ll look at, smell, touch and understand fascinating and sometimes disgusting stuff!  Including; composting methods for back yard, different soil amendments including bio-char, lime and bulk compost.  We’ll even look at our indoor, counter-top Bokoshi compost system.

Spend the morning in the organically managed lily farm with donkeys, chickens and like minded gardeners.  We’ll have presentation and hands-on projects set up to teach you about starting on the road to soil filled with micro-organisms, worms and all sorts of life.

With this basic knowledge you can dive in more deeply with the soil chapters  from “Deep Rooted Wisdom; Stories from Generations of Gardeners.”

We’ll have the book as well as special soil amendments and a few plants available too.

Snacks, water, tea included.  If you’d like to stay for lunch, please bring a brown bag lunch.
