Digging Deeper programs at Edwina von Gal's Marsh House:
10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.: Tea for Two, the Soil and You! Sip delicious tea in the garden while we demonstrate how to create aerated compost tea for soil health and productivity! Learn about the equipment, the process, and the benefits of adding compost tea into your organic gardening routine. There is no additional fee for this program and no registration is required.
11 a.m. & 3 p.m.: Walk with Edwina von Gal to explore the garden she calls her "play pen, laboratory and retreat...an unruly, willful version of what I do for my clients." There is no additional fee for these tours and no registration is required.
2 p.m.: Perfect Earth Seed Bomb Workshop. Adults are invited to come and make Fukuoka-style seed bombs (don’t worry, we’ll explain!). We will use clover and pollinator attracting wildflower mixes and learn about the importance of native pollinators, how to promote and protect their populations, and the best ways to ensure your seed bombs grow and become healthy habitat for wildlife. Children are welcome! Materials and refreshments will be provided. There is no additional fee for this program, please register at the garden.
