This third weekend will focus on  Soil and Water. On Saturday, we will explore the complex, living, breathing edge between the earth and the sky.  By exploring the dynamic Soil Food Web, we will learn about both the geological and ecological relationships which best facilitate plant growth. 

Sunday will explore Water Systems and provide a practical and accessible approach to this most critical infrastructure.  We will look at Residential Irrigation systems that connect the garden to the home.  We will also explore Domestic Plumbing systems such as the kitchen sink, toilet and grey water irrigation.  We’ll learn how to troubleshoot simple problems that homeowners and renters may encounter in everyday life.

Come learn about different compost practices & see what soil looks like up close.

We will start with a presentation, look at some soil under a microscope then move outside to see different compost systems.

Such as: Static/Thermophilic, Johnson-Su Bioreactor, Worm (Vermi), & others. Depending on weather & motivated levels. We can make a thermophilic pile.

If folks want to chat after class bring a lunch & the barn will be available.

PDFs of composting info can be downloaded here:
