612: Pathways to Healthy Soil
A chat with Emily Rockey.
In This Garden Chat:
Emily Rockey joins us for an illuminating discussion on soil – the living, breathing foundation of every garden. Emily takes us down to the roots and peels back the layers to discover what makes up this fascinating, hidden ecosystem. Nature already knows how to make the best soil, and Emily discusses some simple ways to replicate and care for that perfect balance in our gardens.
On the last Tuesday every month we host The Urban Farm Garden Chats where Greg Peterson has a relaxed conversation in a Zoom room with a special guest to cover useful gardening topics, and they answer questions from the live listening audience.
