Composting and Amendments the Natural Way

Skip to page navigation

With Ea Murphy, soil scientist and author

Just like us, gardens need food to thrive, and the best nutrition feeds both plants and the soil. Compost and organic amendments in the garden are the tried-and-true way to do this but cover crops and garden residues also offer valuable nourishment. This class explores how to best use compost, amendments, and so-called garden “waste” to meet the nutritional needs of your soil and your plants. We’ll cover tips for building better compost, the pros and cons of organic materials in your own backyard, and natural solutions to maximize garden nourishment.
