    Event description

You’ll learn all about soil health and ensuring your soil is nutrient-dense, how and where to plant your crops, how to prune your veggies, how to identify and prevent pests and disease, and more!  We'll also share our favorite resources to expand your learning and provide plenty of time after each class to get all your individual questions answered.
