Growing Groceries: Healthy Soil = Healthy Plants Part II
November 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
During Part 2, Dr. Collins will demystify the results of our soil tests, helping us interpret the numbers and determine next steps.
In addition, you’ll learn about everything Compost from Lorraine Brooks: what is good compost, where to find it, how to use it to enrich your garden, as well as how to make compost from your own kitchen and yard waste. Lorraine is currently the Department Head for the Edmonds Community College Horticulture Program. She teaches courses such as plant identification, horticulture plant science, and soils.
No matter if you only have a tiny apartment deck, small garden space, or plenty of acreage you can grow fresh, healthy food in a healthier, more environmentally friendly way.
The WSU Snohomish County Growing Groceries program brings beginning and experienced gardeners together with speakers and topics focused on growing healthy food using sustainable gardening practices.
Developed over the last several years, the program’s goal is to increase our communities’ access to fresh, healthy food by teaching the latest research-based techniques for growing food.
