Description

Most of us are unaware that beneath our feet lies a vast world absolutely teeming with life! As the foundation for all life on the planet, our lives completely depend on this valuable resource that we call SOIL. Understanding the fundamentals of healthy, fertile, living soil is absolutely essential to growing high-quality, nutrient-dense food sustainably. Join Carmen Lamoureux of Urban Farm School and Mike Dorian from Living Soil Solutions as we explore the amazing soil bioverse during this 2-day workshop intensive. Prepare to be amazed by the intricate and function -specific roles filled by various soil micro-organisms, and the incredible diversity of collaborative, mutually-beneficial relationships forged underground! There will be opportunities for you to view your soil through our microscopes and identify what you can do to take care of your soil, so that it can take care of you. We'll also discuss various methods of building and maintaining soil fertility, including compost, compost teas & extracts, as well as cover crops. Weather depending, there will be a hands-on opportunity to build compost.
