During Part 2, Dr. Collins will demystify the results of our soil tests, helping us interpret the numbers and determine next steps.
In addition, Lisa Taylor will talk about everything Compost: 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. Lisa is a garden educator and author of the Maritime Northwest Garden Guide, 2nd ed. and Your Farm in the City: An Urban Dweller’s Guide to Growing Food and Raising Animals. She is passionate about teaching everyone where their food comes from and how to grow it.
