What is soil? And what do you need to pay attention to for your garden? Demystify soil with Lynn Fang, MS, as she uncovers the essential principles behind healthy soil and healthy plants. Go beyond the chemistry of the soil and begin to understand that the soil matrix is a convergence of biology and physics that can help to enhance water retention, minimize soil loss from erosion, and sequester carbon from the atmosphere. Learn how to remineralize your soil, which lab tests to take, and how the unique soil building processes at the Crescent Farm have drastically improved soil health.
