Building Soil in the Garden
March 23, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
Do you want to have healthy soil, eat nutritious food and sequester carbon? We can do it all! Join us for another event from our Resilient Garden Series. Long time no-till gardener, Sharon Gensler will present garden practices that minimize soil disturbance, maintain living plant cover and utilize mulch as the key techniques you can easily employ to achieve all these goals in your garden. You will learn more about:
- Successful reduced tillage methods
- How to use cover crops in the garden
- Why mulching is so important, and how to do it right

This online series is offered as a service to our community to respond to the current needs for home-based food production skills. As we have postponed or cancelled many of our on-farm and in-person education events, we are using our available time as an organization to put together this series. If you learned something of value, please consider making a donation to help keep our organization going during this difficult time. https://www.nofamass.org/donate. Thank you so much.
