    You have heard that soil is life, but what does that really mean?

    This free workshop, hosted by soil experts Brianna Thompson & Cody Alba will transform the way you think about soil. This curiously clean workshop will explore soil health and why it is so vital for a thriving garden. Most folks do not understand the importance of soil-- when was the last time you considered the health of the soil in your patio garden, or community garden? It is time to start!

    Warm apple cider and treats will be provided. The workshop will take place rain or shine!
