Getting to know your garden soil is an important step towards healthy plants and delicious fresh produce. In this workshop you will learn the basics of what constitutes soil, and how to protect and improve it. You’ll also learn simple techniques to manage challenging soil types for food growing, soil biodiversity, water management and using compost and mulch. We’ll also cover dealing with contaminated soils and troubleshooting.
