SOIL PREP FOR THE URBAN GARDENER
Robin Mankey
Saturday, September 22, 2012
10:30 - 12:30
$31
To register click Soil Prep for the Urban Gardener or call 650-493-6072

Raised beds or plant directly in your soil? Learn about bed preparation options for the urban gardener and the many things to consider for higher crop yields and soil fertility. We will look at soil reports, soil amendments, discuss cost and resource uses in establishing growing areas, and conclude with why using your native soil and double-digging is the most efficient, cost-effective solution. In well-prepared beds, plants will grow better and need less water, and weeds will come out easily. Our class will include a hands-on demonstration of double-digging at the Common Ground Garden.

Robin works to connect people with the earth through growing food and through her local company, Take Root. She helps get home gardens going and keeps them flourishing. She is co-author of Ecology Action's Booklet 34 - Food for the Future Now.
