Living Earth: Soil Science for Urban Gardeners

Saturday | March 15, 2014 | 1:00 pm — 5:00 pm

Location in North Oakland, CA

In this mini-intensive we’ll meet the different living organisms in the soil, learn what each does to enhance garden productivity and look at how to feed and proliferate these micro-organisms for specific results, using compost teas. We will learn how legumes partner with bacteria to fix nitrogen, how fungi partner with trees and other plants to uptake nutrients and a bit about the fungi life cycle. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to mix up samples of their own soil and idenitfy who is living there using the microscope. A wealth of information and inspiration to deepen your knowledge and appreciation of soil as the most important player in our garden.
