Growing Green: Compost – Building Your Soil

How healthy is your soil, and what can you do to improve it? One of the best ways to “build” the nutrition of your soil, and thereby increase the nutrient uptake in garden plants, is by utilizing what Mary Ann Ihm calls “Black Gold”- compost! We will discuss various techniques and methods to support the O-horizon by creating and maintaining an at-home compost.

Meet at Wellspring Farm in West Bend (address below).
