(video & webinar) Soil Basics

Wednesday, July 8 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am

$20 – $25

Please note that this will be two components for this workshop: a (private) pre-recorded lecture (to be viewed before 8 July 2020) and a live, webinar session (offered via Zoom) and not a lecture at the garden. After registration (see below), you will receive further instructions from the Program Coordinator prior to the workshop date. Registration will close on 8 July 2020 at 8am.

Soil is the foundation of healthy plants.  Join Walker Young, Assistant Curator, for a virtual lecture 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 8 July 2020 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 (bed 6) which involved a significant amount of soil preparation.

After registration, you will receive an email from the Program Coordinator: a link to the private lecture video (1.5 hours) and a Zoom link for the live webinar portion (30 minutes).
