Workshop to explore nature of healthy soil

Soil is much more than just the brown stuff plants need to grow. It is an ecosystem, a recycler of raw materials, a home to billions of organisms, and the medium that gardeners love to dig their hands in.

Just in time for Victoria Day, the traditional start of Canada’s gardening season, a free public workshop this weekend in the Campus Community Garden will explore soil health and how it can be improved.

The Soil Health Workshop, part of the “Nurturing Communities through Nurturing Gardens” series, begins at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 18. The garden is located on 380 California Avenue.
