“The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.”― Wendell Berry,
Many modern farmers believe the soil is the key to all that exists in agriculture. Join us as we hear from Chris Lawrence, NRCS soil specialist, on this important topic. Starting with a live demonstration involving samples of healthy vs. unhealthy soils from the Richmond area, Chris will explain the core principles of sustainable soil management. The principles are universal and therefore apply to everyone, from the home gardener to commercial crop producers. Come pick up some practical ideas for how to manage your ground and experience a little of the magic and mystery of healthy soil.
delish360 will be on hand with delicious vegan and gluten free waffles with various toppings to sample! Real Local RVA meetings are open to both members and those interested in supporting the local food system.
