On Saturday Feb. 11 from 2:00-4:00pm, Juaquin will be demonstrating how to make soil mix for the seed flats that we will soon be sowing. Using our own compost, sifted horse manure, arroyo soil, sand, leaf mulch and other magical ingredients, we will prepare all the soil we need for our flats.
If the weather is balmy, please know that the yard gets muddy, so please wear appropriate shoes!!
