Compost and Cover Crops for the Home Garden and Orchard

UCSC Farm & Garden Program - Santa Cruz, California

This 3-hour lecture/demonstration workshop will take place at the historic Alan Chadwick Garden at UC Santa Cruz.

Quality compost is a key ingredient of a successful garden, and along with cover crops can provide most if not all of your garden's fertility needs while improving soil quality. Learn to make quality compost and select and grow cover crops from Orin Martin, manager of the Alan Chadwick Garden, and Zoe Hitchner and Sky DeMuro of Everett Family Farm. Note: heavy rain cancels; rainout date is Saturday, April 13.
