Soil Fertility Gardening Class February 29

(Woodland, CA) – Interested in learning how to enrich the soil in your garden by increasing its fertility? The Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency is hosting a free soil fertility gardening class on Saturday, February 29 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. at the Hanna & Herbert Bauer Memorial Community Garden, located at 137 N. Cottonwood Street in Woodland, behind the Bauer Building.

In this hands-on class participants will learn how cover-cropping and backyard composting, including the use of worms, can add organic matter in their garden with the goal of creating nutrient-rich soil to help fruits and vegetables grow well. This is a great opportunity for garden enthusiasts to discover various compost system designs and have questions answered.

Participants must pre-register by February 28 by contacting David Linebarger at (530) 666-8429 or david.linebarger@yolocounty.org. Participants are encouraged to dress for cold weather and wear shoes that can get dirty. In the event of steady rain, the class will be postponed.

The Yolo County Health & Human Services Agency is committed to providing education that can help residents eat fresh fruits and vegetables and live healthier lives by offering free classes throughout the year at the Community Garden. Participants can learn more about the garden activities and classes at: www.yolocounty.org/garden
