I organized a workshop taught by local Master Gardeners at the La Honda School Garden, so local garden geeks like me could get together and learn some new things.
I discovered a gopher in my garden just last week, so I was ready for the specific pointers in Janice Moody’s non-toxic gopher control talk. She has successfully trapped hundreds of gophers on her property.
Then Terry Lyngso shared her talk on soil life, and how plants work with the life forms around their roots to obtain the right nutrition at the right time. We wrapped up with a demonstration on the garden discussing the different types of compost piles and how to use compost to build the amount of life in the soil, so our plants can feed themselves.
