February 16 - Soil: Ground Zero for Garden & Planetary Health
Learn the definition and components of soil, and what it takes to best support your garden.
Participants will be able to: identify soil characteristics based on texture, structure and types of plants growing in it; know what turns soil into dirt; understand basic plant biology (and why never to buy petrochemically-based fertilizers again); compost and vermicompost; understand the importance of organic matter in soil. Cost: $40 (cash or check at door). To pre-register or pay by credit card, click here: www.sustainablecoco.org. Photos by Alison Clary
The Rodgers Ranch Heritage Center's Board of Directors is excited to use our blog, "Ranch Posts," to keep members and the public informed of the latest activities at the ranch. We invite you to comment, ask questions, or muse on the heritage center, both its historical past and its thriving present.
