It's the Soil that Counts- Foundational Class, TBA, Saturday, 16. November 2019

Many of us, community gardens included, struggle with gardening in sand. Soil food webs are of growing interest to those wanting to garden organically. They thrive in biologically healthy soils and exist in poor soils.  With the naked eye, we can’t see many of the organisms that are key to their effectiveness.
These workshops will help you develop a strong understanding of soil food webs and how to develop and maintain them in your environment. Through hands on activities using high powered microscopes you will see and become familiar with bacteria, fungi, protozoa and nematodes in soil. 
The knowledge will be valuable as you garden organically, make compost or compost teas and care for our environment. These workshops are targeted at champions within community gardens but will be useful to home gardeners, landscapers and others with an interest in soil health.
