We all have ideas for our yards and our gardens. Then reality sets in, particularly when you want to create new spaces. Learn how to plan for and prepare new beds and gardens in a way that doesn’t involve digging. This class will show you a practical, low input way to start your beds off in a healthy, organic way and be ready to plant by spring.
We’ll cover soil basics, the food-web and environment. The goal is healthy soil and plants where your garden will thrive naturally, but without the hassle of double-digging, roto-tilling and other labor-intensive methods.
