In this workshop, you will learn how to work with our foothill soils to increase their fertility, drainage and overall structure through the utilization of the best soil amendment on earth – compost!  The key to vigorous gardens is feeding the soil which in turn feeds the plant.  Come and explore the wonderful world of decomposition with the Worm Whisper!
