Get Down Get Dirty #3 – Workshop Series on Urban Permaculture


We are looking forward to the next session of our Permaculture programm: This time its all about soil!

Soil is food – around 90% of our food in the EU comes from the land.
Soil is life – in one teaspoon of healthy soil, you will find from 100 million to 1 billion bacteria. This life below the surface we walk on is far greater than and essential to the life above it.
Our soils are valuable and vulnerable – we need to find our connection to this important resource. And what better time to do it than in 2015: International Year of Soils!?!

This coming Saturday we’ll be covering the big picture, down through to window sill scale.
To better help you understand YOUR soil, please bring:

* A jar half full of soil from your garden, or several if there are different areas.

Following a good and thorough look at what is the be all and end all to a healthy earth and a healthy garden, we’ll be showing you some easy ways to compost in a city apartment (yes, reducing waste and improving your soil).
