The soil food web is made up of all kinds of soil critters that have a symbiotic relationship with plants and act as nature’s very own nutrient recycling system. Learn how to nurture your soil biology so that beneficial microbes feed your plants and you can stop using synthetic fertilizers.
Seeds of Grace is a non-profit that builds community gardens in Washington State and Mexico. Each garden donates their produce to community organizations such as homeless shelters, food banks, after school programs, and Meals on Wheels. I sat down with Seeds of Grace founder, Karole Johnson, to ask her how others can start building community gardens where they live. She offered several helpful suggestions based on what she has learned over the years.
