UC Master Gardener Delise Weir will discuss the importance of soil as the starting point for your seasonal garden in the Monterey Bay region. We'll begin with a little soil science to explain why organic matter, pH and soil structure are important to soil health. Then we'll talk about fertility and soil nutrition. We'll end with practical techniques for converting hard or sandy untouched dirt into fertile, rich garden beds. Then, we'll move out the demo garden and put our skills and knowledge into action.
Things to bring:
- A sample of your soil ~1 cup in a mason jar with a lid.
- Bring garden gloves if you plan to help with preparing beds in the demo garden.
- Hat, sunscreen, layered clothing for the outdoor portion
