When: Saturday, 10/19/19,  9 AM - 3 PM
Class Name: Healthy Soils, Happy Roots
Where: Santa Rosa Junior College, 1501 Mendocino Ave, Santa Rosa, Emeritus Hall, 1518
Many home gardens and planting areas are, sadly, composed of just plain dirt, without the friability, nutrients, or drainage necessary for sustained and productive plant growth. This course will provide many techniques for creating a good loamy soil, using simple raw materials and homegrown fertility. Among other topics, instructor will cover: "green" manures; the benefits and limits of manures; the realities of composting; layered fertility; no-till soil development; mound gardening; use of wood chips for free drainage; and cover crops&emdash; and more practical ideas than you can shake a shovel at.
 
The roots of all landscape and garden plants are dependent on soil quality. Root growth has a profound effect on every garden, yet because roots are out of sight, many gardeners harbor common misconceptions about them. This session will also illustrate how roots really grow, revealing surprising and useful facts. Did you know that the root mass of a plant often grows up to three times wider than its foliage? I will root out many commonly held false notions and growing practices, and replace them with scientific facts and colorful examples. 
Class is conducted by noted garden author, Robert Kourik        
 
Enrollment: $96 (Includes a copy of Robert Kourik's "Understanding Roots".
