« back to classes page
CourseGraphic Nature’s age-old methods of improving soil are a process that has evolved over long periods of time. We will learn how soil improvement occurs in nature and how to replicate it in a shorter length of time. Methods discussed will be: how to determine the make-up of your soil with pH testing and particle observation; how some “weeds” are actually pioneers; how to prepare the ground for improvement; how encouraging wild birds, raising ducks, geese, chickens or game birds are important to the earth and other elements of your landscape. These are just a few of the topics that we will cover. Computer skills are not necessary for this class but ability and interest in Internet research are strongly recommended.
