Soil Fertility Workshop this Saturday!

Dear Farm Friends,

Don’t forget about our first seasonal gardening workshop this Saturday at Alemany Farm. It’s all about soil, so come get your hands dirty and learn some fundamentals!

It Starts with the Soil: Composting 101 and Soil Fertility for Your Garden
Saturday, May 10, 11 am – 3 pm
Instructor: Jason Mark
If you want to have healthy plants, you need healthy soil. This workshop will cover the basics of maintaining soil fertility, including annual cover cropping, compost building, and soil testing.
Jason Mark is a co-founder of Alemany Farm and a veteran urban gardener.
