Come learn how to create the healthiest soil ever with Connie Kuramoto, long time Horticultural Instructor. Comox Valley Growers and Seed Savers is featuring Kuramoto as the guest speaker at their AGM, on Thurs, June 6, at Creekside Commons in Courtenay.
The evening will also include a look at the new seed winnower, and a short stroll through the Creekside gardens, starting at 6:30. The meeting starts at 7 pm, with a short business session and elections, followed by the guest speaker at 7:45.
Connie will outline the simple steps in building a high quality soil ecosystem that will provide your garden with resilience and balance without spending a lot of money to do it. She explained, “This more balanced ecosystem will provide your plants with superior resistance to insects and disease. Your plants will also provide better nutrition and stronger seeds.”
During the presentation she will introduce some of the microbes that make soil alive, and learn how hard they can work, if provided them with the few simple things that they need. Bring your questions, bring some soil.
