McGovern Centennial Gardens
1500 Hermann Drive, Houston, Texas
Hermann Park Conservancy's FREE garden class series in the McGovern Centennial Gardens continues with a session on soil health.

John Ferguson, Master Soil Wizard and owner of Nature’s Way Resources will introduce us to a new model of soil science and fertility management released by the USDA, called the “Soil Food Web”. It explains how biological (organic) methods work and how they save you time and money in your gardening projects by preventing many problems. These biological methods are sustainable, greatly reduce water requirements, prevent problems, eliminate air and water pollution, and lower total management costs from property management to erosion control. From the model of how plants and soil work, one can determine what composting method to use and feedstocks to accept based on the end usage of the compost. Feedstocks that work well in one area may cause plant health problems in other areas.

This class is free and open to the public. Space is limited and advanced registration is required. To register, click the ticket link above.
