Building Healthy Soils Series with Emma Holmes


We are hosting a three part workshop series on ‘Building Healthy Soils’ with soils expert, Emma Holmes. This series is perfect for new or aspiring farmers, gardeners, ecologists, or anyone curious about soils.

Whether you just have houseplants, a little worm bin under your sink, or a huge yard full of veggies, the same principles apply to better understanding your soil and compost. Managing common problems such as nutrient levels, pests, odours, and scheduling compost maintenance time into your busy life will all be topics that are covered in these next workshops. Come learn with us!
