Webinar: Soil – It’s What Plants Crave! (Free to All)

Wed, May 11, 2022 @ 12:00 pm EDT - 1:00 pm EDT

A Wednesday Walk in the Garden

Come get your soils questions answered by The Organic Mechanic! Soils are the foundation of any garden. Managing soils organically improves soil structure, soil microbiology, and increases ecosystem health. This conversation about organic soils, fertilizers, and soil amendments will outline basic soil science and focus on how to maximize soil productivity with organic methods.

It was on a beautiful piece of Illinois farmland that Mark Highland pushed his first shovel into garden soil. After he “grew up,” Mark focused his M.S. degree studies in the Longwood Graduate Program on compost and potting soil. After the Longwood Graduate Program, Mark started The Organic Mechanic Soil Company, LLC in 2006, and serves as President of Organic Mechanics. Mark has served as a consultant for the EPA and Institute for Local Self-Reliance. Mark is the author of the recently published Practical Organic Gardening: The No-Nonsense Guide to Growing Naturally.
