WEBINAR (FULL)

Eastman Foundation & Grantham Garden Club, Grantham, NH

 

Edible Landscapes and Soil Health 

What would happen if we shifted the paradigm of how people interface with the land? Can we as gardeners and land managers help to slow water down, deepen watersheds, increase biological soil health and create conditions for thriving ecosystems, all while providing food and flowers for humans and wildlife? When we listen carefully to nature, we are shown what is possible. This presentation will deepen your interest in building healthy soil and leave you inspired to get involved in your own backyard, schoolyard, town forest and public lands to deepen the roots of security and community resilience for future generations. Engaging powerpoint with Q&A.
