Soil Health 101
Soil - Soil is not dirt. It is a complex system of minerals, air, water and micro-organisms. There are more micro-organisms in a teaspoon of soil than there are people on earth. Soil is alive and supports a vast but tiny ecosystem.
Some of the topics that will be covered include:
· How is soil designed
· The importance of environment and nutrition
· Understanding the soil will help to grow nutrient dense food
Excellent handout with helpful resources discussed in the workshop.
Check out the book Dirt to Soil by Gabe Brown as a great follow up to this workshop.
