Regenerative Soil Ecology

April 7 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

for Home and Community Gardens

with Wildcat

This one day workshop on regenerative gardening takes a living systems approach to soil and will introduce people to simple techniques for building living, fertile, resilient soil through increasing soil biodiversity and biomass. Regenerative gardening yields foods and medicines with much higher nutrient content and better flavor. We will explore nutrient cycling through the lens of soil, plant, and fungal ecology.

Learn about

  • no till/ no fertilize methods
  • microbial soil inoculation
  • creating biodiverse polyculture

Regenerative soil ecology sequesters carbon and preserves and increases biodiversity.  The techniques discussed in this workshop will help mitigate global warming, climate change, and ocean acidification. All this can be addressed by making wise decisions in our home and community gardens.

Cost is $35 per participant. Discounts available.
