Healthy Soils Workshop Series: Selecting Fertilizers & Mulches for the Organic Garden

May 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

From seaweed and manure to leaves and rock dusts, there are plenty of yummy fertilizers to feed to the soil, so it will grow healthy plants. And best of all, many of these are plentiful and cheap or even free. Christina will give an overview of what’s out there, where to find it, and what it’s good for. She will have samples on hand and can give tips and details on application techniques and dilution rates too. Participants will come away with a full menu of choices for soil care and nutrition.
