April 17, 2021 BDG Workshop - Don't Treat Your Soil Like Dirt 

 

If you want to increase your gardening knowledge and skills, the Bellevue Demonstration Garden (BDG) Workshop series can help you. A broad range of topics which are based on scientific information emphasizing plants and methods that work in the Pacific Northwest will be discussed. These workshops are appropriate for both beginning and experienced gardeners. Current science and techniques are emphasized. Participants can expect to learn about new methods and plants as well as the tried and true. Topics will vary from vegetable to ornamental cultivation and may discuss blending both in your garden beds.

The April 17, 2021, workshop will be presented by Horticulture Writer & Educator, Christine Pfeiffer who will speak about Don’t Treat Your Soil Like Dirt. Attendees will learn simple yet incredibly effective soil care tactics every gardener can use. Many home gardeners assume their soil will need drastic help or may need to buy new topsoil to grow anything well. But it’s very likely their soil just needs the right care and may actually be better than importing new soil. Drawing on current research, this lecture provides simple yet incredibly effective soil care tactics every gardener can use.

Instructions for joining the Zoom classes will be sent to registrants at 7:30AM the day of the class. Classes will be held on Saturdays. Access to Zoom will be open at 9:00AM the day of the class. You must register for this class to receive the Zoom instructions. A minimum donation of $5 is suggested for this class.
