(Video & Webinar) Soil Basics in Dry Gardens

Friday, June 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

$20.00 – $35.00

Please note that there are two components for this workshop: a pre-recorded lecture and a live Q&A webinar (offered via Zoom) and not a lecture at the garden. Registration will close on 30 June 2023 at 8am.  You will be expected to view the pre-recorded lecture in order to participate in the live Q&A on 30 June 2023 at 11am.  This class is part of the Dry Garden Design Certificate program series.

Soil is the foundation of healthy plants.  Join Walker Young, Assistant Curator, for a lecture (recorded August 2022) to learn about the content of soil, our recommendations for the perfect ratio of materials, and the care that your soil needs in order to keep your plants healthy and happy.  The second portion (a live, webinar session on 30 June 2023 at 11am) will be open to participants for Q & A as well as Walker’s opportunity to talk a little bit about the large-scale, renovation bed project under the shade structure which involved a significant amount of soil preparation.


Part 1: After registration, you will receive an automated email receipt (with a link to the lecture recording) from register@ruthbancroftgarden.org

Part 2: You will receive a Zoom link (for the Q&A) on 29 June 2023 from the Program Director.
