Event Description

VanDusen member: $65 / Non-member: $72
Home-grown food should be ultra-tasty and nutritious, but in reality, the nutrient value can vary greatly depending on what is in your soil.

Discover the connection between amazing flavours, soil health, your health and an overall healthier planet. This 2-part course will look at beneficial microbes in living garden soil, macro and micronutrients needed by plants, and the best ways to build soil health to increase the nutrition in your crops. Learn which organic soil builders, boosters and fertilizers are best, how to grow cover crops and bioaccumulators and what they can also add to your soil structure. Learn how to compost, match the best composter to your needs, and make compost tea, including actively aerated compost teas (like probiotics for your soil). Everyone will make a compost tea bag to take home.
