Soil. It’s Alive!


Part of the 2019 workshop series for beginning farmers at Fauquier Education Farm.

MAY 14, 2019

Fauquier Education Farm
8428 Meetze Rd. • Warrenton, VA 

This workshop is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is not required.

Explore the complex web of living organisms that can help make your garden soil much more productive. We will discuss the different types of organisms that are vital to good healthy soil and how you can be a better farmer by treating your soil as a living community.

We will be joined by Nancy Berlin from Prince William VCE and Thomas Bolles of Prince William SWCD. We will have guest worms, too! We also will take the time to look at how we build soil bio-diversity at the Fauquier Education Farm with methods you can use at home.
