Future-Proof your Vegetable Garden: Improve Soil Health for Drought Resiliency

Healthy soil is the foundation of a productive, thriving garden. Fall is the perfect time to improve soil fertility for next year's harvest using thoughtful soil management to improve drought resiliency, reduce weed pressure and sequester carbon.

UC Master Gardener Delise Weir will discuss how to improve soil health in your vegetable beds through a deep dive on cover crops: why they are important, which to use for your particular needs and how to deal with them once they're grown. Learn basic low-till gardening techniques that provide optimal conditions for enhancing and sustaining biotic life in the soil, making essential nutrients more biologically available to plants. The class will conclude with Q&A from some CASFS surprise guests. All attendees will leave with some cover crop seed to plant at home. 

Online registration is free for all. Please reserve your seat at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4403745; space is limited.
