Soil Building for Healthier, Happier Gardens

October 13 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am EDT


Soil building is the #1 way to help you have the garden of your dreams. Protecting and nurturing soil health should be an annual priority of all gardeners. No matter if you want to grow blue-ribbon vegetables or prize-winning perennials, finding ways to add organic matter to your soil and understanding how to respond to soil test results will pay dividends in healthier, more pest- and disease-resistant landscapes. Kirsten Conrad, Extension Agent for Arlington and the City of Alexandria provides you with tips and tricks for improving existing garden beds and building new ones.
