The root of all life, including human life, is in the soil.  In this half-day workshop, join Tarrah Young from Green Being Farm(http://www.greenbeingfarm.ca/), to learn the basics of soil science in an accessible and hands-on way.  Rather than relying on inputs for fertility, get ready for ideas on how to optimize your soil’s health, and ultimately the health of your crops, by using the biological community to unleash the tremendous potential in your soil!
