Edible Evanston's Illinois Soil Health Week Event
Learn about compost and soils and how what you do in your garden impacts soil health and the planet.
Gardeners can learn how to continuously enhance their soil's health while producing food in an urban garden. In this workshop you can learn ways to improve your soil health, expand your food production, all while benefiting the climate. Learn to measure your soil health through the use of a “Soil Health Card.”
This event is a partnership with the Illinois Stewardship Alliance's Soil Health Week, the Evanston Public Library, and the Evanston Ecology Center's Community Gardeners program.
