But, how often do we ignore that basic fact and begin planting without a real understanding of the soil we have and how it relates to and impacts the plants that we’re trying to grow? Join Mark Highland, President of The Organic Mechanics Soil Company, to learn about the different kinds of soils and how their characteristics translate to advantages and disadvantages for your garden. We’ll also cover practical methods for improving your soil, and you’ll leave with actionable advice that will have you digging in the dirt in no time.
