The Dirt on Dirt:  Cover Crops, Mulches, and Caring for Your Soil    
Emily Apple Wilkins           

Every Northwesterner has seen winter’s rains turn soil into gullies or a soggy, compacted mess.  Less visible but equally worrisome is the leaching of nutrients from uncovered soils.  Emily will tell you how to use cover crops and different mulches and amendments to not just protect your soil, but improve it.  Proper techniques can have your beds facing the spring in better shape than before. 

Sunday, September 22nd                    2 pm –3:00 pm
