Class: Turning Sand Into Soil

Trying to grow crops in this sandy joke some call "soil" can make us give up gardening altogether. Garden writer John Starnes (St. Pete Times, Florida Gardening, Fine Gardening) grew his first veggie garden here in 1967 when he was 14, and has been growing much of his own food since 1984 both here and in Denver. Learn the basics of frugally transforming your sand into humus-rich actual soil teeming with beneficial microbes and loaded with all the nutrients that plants need to be vibrantly healthy and thrive. There is a nice handout for the class but DO bring a notebook and pen. You will receive one free envelope of an easy-to-grow unusual food crop seeds to help get you started right away. The class runs from 11 AM until 1 PM on June 5, 2011 at 3212 West Paxton Avenue Tampa FL 33611. Call to confirm attendance. John Starnes 813 839 0881
