Creating an awesome thread for soil - a jumping point for a lot of resources!

Online Garden Master Course
  • This is a recording of the first Certified Garden Master Course held at Wheaton Labs. The Garden Master Course teaches organic, veganic, and no-till permaculture gardening techniques. The course focuses on soil and habitat building for beneficial organisms, and emphasizes systems thinking for gardeners and farmers. It covers managing relationships in the garden, rather than just growing crops.

    Something to think about,  I could do the online course.  I'm sure the in-person classes would be so much fun, butttttttt, it snowed in Montana this week, no place for a southern boy!!
