Soil Health, Fertility, and the Underground Economy

May 21, 2011 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

$45

Everything comes from the soil.

We need healthy soils to grow produce; the urban landscape supplies all the nutrients and minerals we need. Workshop attendees will learn how to build nutrient cycling into their properties to ensure soil health and good harvests.
