WOODLAND, Calif. — Interested in learning how to enrich the soil in your garden to increase its fertility? Join the Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency at the Hanna and Herbert Bauer Community Garden in Woodland for a free soil fertility gardening class on Saturday, February 23 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m.
In this hands-on class, participants will learn about cover-cropping and backyard composting, including the use of worms, to build soil organic matter in the garden with the goal of creating nutrient-rich soil to help fruits and vegetables grow well. Participants will have the benefit of learning from two garden experts: a Master Gardener of Yolo County and the garden manager of the Hanna and Herbert Bauer Memorial Community Garden. This is a great opportunity for garden enthusiasts to discover various compost system designs and get answers to their related questions.
This class is free to all, and is part of the Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency’s commitment to providing education that can help residents eat fresh fruits and vegetables and live healthier lives. Classes are offered for free throughout the year at the community garden. To learn more about the garden activities and classes, visit: www.yolocounty.org/garden.
