Sunday March 29th * Building Topsoil & Fertility with Mikl Brawner
David Montgomery, geologist at U. of Washington, estimates “we are now losing about 1 percent of our topsoil every year to erosion, most of this caused by (industrial) agriculture.” In this class Mikl Brawner will teach how home gardens can counter that trend and, with organic methods, add fertility to our gardens instead of problematically adding to the problem. He will discuss how to support soil life, enrich poor soils, and improve plant health and nutrition from the bottom up: composts, fertilizers, mulching, worms, deficiencies, and tilth. Mikl Brawner, Co-Owner and Founder of Harlequin’s Gardens, has devoted much of his life to understanding natural systems and promoting ecological practices.
