Compost is one of the easiest ways to increase tilth and better how your garden grows. Build a simple compost heap and a raised garden bed using a method called “Lasagne Gardening.” Discuss green manure, vermiculture, and other ways to improve soil health. Go home with your own red wriggler worms to kick-start your compost heap. We’ll meet from 10:30-1:30 at the Local Farm garden in Cornwall, CT. Bring your own tips, experiences, and stories of building soil health to share at our noon-time pot-luck lunch. Suggested Donation $35/family.
