Matthew Hoselton from Concentrates Northwest will demystify the process of amending your garden soil using rock minerals and organic fertilizers. This introductory class will cover the basics of soil composition, nutrient chemistry, and the soil-food-web.  You’ll also learn techniques that you can use to build fertility from natural materials, with a focus on the needs of soils in the Willamette Valley.
