In this Village Vancouver workshop with Rhiannon Johnson, you'll learn how to build your soil for a healthy vibrant veggie garden! Bring a 1 liter CLEAR container with a lid at least half full of YOUR garden soil for some simple tests to learn how to improve it with natural fertilizers, soil amendments, and gardening techniques. We'll also learn about composting, tailored to your space, and how it can supplement your garden's health. We'll have the community seed library present - you can get some free seeds for your garden or swap or donate some seeds.
Cost: $0-10, including soil testing.
