Title: Building Soil for Natural Gardens – Cultivating Life Belowground
Natural gardens rely on the breathing, growing, eating, and beating of a healthy, living soil. Cultivating this vibrant ecosystem belowground relies not on doing more, but on doing less, understanding a few basic principles to guide how we grow. Join Elizabeth Murphy, author and soil scientist, in an exploration of the living soil food web to grow healthier plants and a greener planet. Learn how nurturing the living soil recycles nutrients, absorbs water, reduces pest and disease, captures carbon, and drought-proofs the garden. Get down to the ground for a soil-eyed view that will change the way you grow.
