April Speaker: Corey Welles - Plant Health Care Coordinator, Ganna Walska Lotusland

  Organic Soil Health - The Soil Food Web

  Corey Welles will describe the new focus of sustainable horticulture, which emphasizes building the ecology of the entire garden - starting with the soil, and extending all the way up the food      chain.  He will discuss soil amendments, organic fertilizers, insects, rodents, birds, and other critters. By the end of his talk he is hoping that you will consider measuring the health of your          garden not just by the size of the flowers, but by the diversity of crawling and flying critters you encounter while gardening.
