Workshop Description

Soil is the building block to your garden and your local environment, it also plays an important role in climate action. And should look like chocolate cake…

Healthy soil stores carbon, lots of it. So building the soil food web beneath your feet can reduce your emissions, store carbon and help your home, garden, the local wildlife, your community adapt to a warming climate.  Often being the most connected to the earth and its natural cycles and patterns, gardeners have a role to play in being soil stewards. You will learn why the action of an individual is powerful and the simple ways to improve the soil in our garden to reduce your carbon footprint.

This workshop introduce participants to the science of soil and regenerative gardening, and provide tips on how to protect and improve soil in an environmentally beneficial way, working with natural cycles, rather than against them.
