Improving Soil Health

Our gardens must have healthy, rich soil to successfully grow a wide range of ornamental and edible plants. We will talk about how to use a simple home test kit to evaluate garden soil pH and nutrient levels, plus methods for improving soil health, texture, and fertility. This is a great time of year to start making a difference and to stop treating your soil like dirt!
