Event Description: 

Build 3 inches of Healthy Soil in 2 months!

This Hands-on Workshop shows you the secrets

If you have:

  • Soil so hard and compacted that you can hardly dig
  • Soil that is clay, sandy or Decomposed granite that either doesn’t hold enough water or holds too much
  • Plants and trees that look sickly or die
  • Very little good/healthy top soil
  • Soil with no life - no worms – just dead and dry

Then do yourself, your plants and your yard a favor by taking this hands on workshop. Learn from this 2 hour workshop and finally have a yard with gorgeous, dark, fertile soil.

A vibrant landscape can only grow from healthy soil. It’s not just “dirt” – it’s a thriving ecosystem of soil microbes! And the more we fuel it, the stronger our plants, foods, and climate become. As the old adage says, “The stronger your roots, the stronger your fruits.”

Many traditional gardening practices weaken the soil’s ecosystem. But, with a little knowledge and a few small adjustments, we can strengthen and harness the army of soil microbes to grow beautiful, low-maintenance plants.

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn:

  • 5 common gardening methods that weaken our soil
  • How to turn troubled soil into healthy soil
  • How to build 3 inches of rich topsoil in 3 months
  • 5 steps to a low-water, low-maintenance, beautiful yard
  • How to reduce your landscaping water bill by 95%

This workshop is packed with information, so don’t be late!
We start promptly at 9:30. Please check in by 9:15.

What to bring:

  • Sun Protection: hat, sunscreen, sunglasses
  • Suitable Clothing: long pants, long sleeves, closed-toe shoes

  • If you check in before 9:30, you qualify for the RAFFLE! Don’t miss out on your chance to win landscaping books and starter plants!
