In early April, we can begin planting out all the cole crops including Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Turnips, Kale, and Collards. It is also a time of planting greens. As many plants will be planted in the garden this month and in the months to come, we will continue our discussion on soil building in this class.

Students will learn about the critters in the soil food web that are linked with fertile soil. Local materials that can be fed to these microbes will be highlighted with explanations of diverse soil building strategies such as composting, hugelkultur, sheet mulching, vermiculture, cover crops, compost tea, and more. Many of these strategies also help with the water holding capacity of your soil, a necessary criteria as we prepare for what may be another long, dry summer.

These classes are available as a five class series ($100) or as individual events ($25 each). 20% off discount for People's Food Coop members ­– just be in touch with Marisha by email at [email protected] to get the discount code.
