Bluebird Farm: Growing Great Soils!


Are you ready to grow the most nutrient-dense foods possible? Would you like to learn about the simplest and most effective carbon sequestering strategy available to all humankind? 


Then join us for Growing Great Soils! This is a 3 class series on Saturdays March 10, April 14, and May 12. Take one, two, or all three. Classes start at 10am and end at Noon.


We have redesigned this year’s program to create classes that are demonstration-oriented, filled with well-timed strategies, and grounded in key principles so you can think on your feet.


Each class will focus on soil-enhancing activities appropriate to that month, sending you home with ideas and insights that you can immediately apply. Each class will also include at least 30 minutes devoted to answering questions, so we can be sure we are giving you help where you need it most.


We can save you time, money, and energy by helping you understand what techniques to apply in your garden, when to use them, and what fertilizers and amendments to buy. (Hint: very few!)


Soil is the key to a healthy and happy world, but it’s not about the soil chemistry – it’s about the soil biology. Soil biology has been transforming our planet into a paradise for millions of years. It’s time for us all to give those microbes some help!


All classes will take place at Bluebird Farm and Permaculture Garden, 11153 Cement Hill Road, Nevada City. The cost is $20 per class or $50 for all three.

Classes will happen rain or shine. In case of rain, we will be outside for a half hour or so and then head indoors for a fuller discussion of details. Dress appropriate to the weather. No preregistration is needed for these classes.
