This Sunday, August 30th, from 2-5 pm, the Bullitt Reservation in Ashfield, MA will be holding the last of this summer's gardening workshops: Soil Fertility will be an in-depth look at the molecular basis of fertility, including such topics as mycorrhizal relationships, ramial chipped wood, compost, mulches, cover-crops and other strategies to manage soil health. We will delve into remineralization, how to use a soil analysis to make a custom blend of amendments for your soil, and how to manage fluctuations in fertility over time.

The workshop is free for members of the Trustees of Reservations, and $5 for non-members. It will happen RAIN OR SHINE, and take place at the Bullitt Reservation, 332 Bullitt Rd, Ashfield, MA 01330. There is no need to register, but call Emmet at 413 628-4485 x1 with any questions.

Following the workshop, there will also be a brief scything demonstration, along with a tutorial on sharpening, peening, blade repair and making your own scythe handle. If you want to bring your own scythe, that's great, and we can get a line of people mowing.
What's that smell? I think this tiny ad may have stepped in something.
