On Tuesday, April 20 at 7 p.m. in the W.H. Over Museum, Dean Spader, a master gardener, will give a presentation entitled, "Healthy Food, Lawns, and Soil."
The US Department of Ag nutritional tables show that the average nutritional content of vegetables has declined 25 to 33 percent across the board – all vegetables, all vitamins, and minerals. So we must ask, "Is our soil becoming sicker? Are we killing our soil?"
How a gardener or farmer treats the soil determines how nutritious the food is that is produced from that soil. This presentation describes two distinct types of soil treatment and the recent research that indicates how to maintain and increase the health in the soil of your garden, lawns, and fields.
