It’s All About the Soil
April 9, 2:30 – 4:30 pm
Jones Farm, 246 Acton Rd., Chelmsford, MA
If you want healthy plants that resist disease and insect infestation plus edible plants that offer more nutritients, then you need the healthiest soil possible. Join Famer Phil of Jones Farm at his farm and he will go over what is essential to healthy soil. This includes information such as what proportional mix is best (loam, dirt, mulch, peat moss, compost, etc.) and what to use for fertilizer and amendments. Phil will also cover how to grow more earth worms that break down and nourish the soil. You can bring a small soil sample (2 tablespoons 4” down) from your garden & Farmer Phil will do an energy test on it. You will be surprised at what is in soil and how nutritious and tasty your home-grown food can be!
