Sunday, April 5: Intro To Intensive Methods and Soil Structure 101

Dometop Community Garden

By Ron Swarner on March 31, 2015

So you walk through the grocery store, and you look at the big, shiny red apples, and you feel hungry. Then you notice just how big and red and shiny they all are. You get all suspicious and start remembering things about pesticides and growing seasons, and all of a sudden, everything in the produce section just seems wrong! Wrong! Wrong! Or at least a little unnatural. So you pick up your weekly paper hoping the calendars came back and you see this announcement for Free Skool's Intensive Methods And Soil Structure 101. You see that the class not only discusses the basics of "Organic Intensive Gardening" but also allows you to partake in open format garden discussions about the importance of pollinators, GMOs vs. hybrids vs. heirlooms, food production/agriculture history and native plants. And you go.

INTRO TO INTENSIVE METHODS AND SOIL STRUCTURE 101, 2:30 p.m., Dometop Community Garden, 3260 E. L St., Tacoma, free admission,
