Does your garden struggle with clay soil? Welcome to Georgia! Clay is an important component of nutrient rich soil, but too much clay is hard for plants to deal with. In the dog days of Southern summers clay's as hard as a rock and plant roots can't penetrate it. In Georgia's wet winters, clay makes a gloopy, gooey muck that can rot the best plants. The good news is that there are easy solutions to creating good soil.
Jeff Killingsworth has worked in large gardens all over the Georgia Piedmont, from Beech Hollow's stock beds, to private Atlanta gardens, and currently in the gardens at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. He will cover topics including: soil food web basics, sheet mulching, and how to brew compost tea. Jeff knows how to build good soil, and he's willing to show us how.
