Healthy Soil = Heaping Harvest

Thursday, May 10, 2018 at 5:45pm

Lincoln Park Garden, Albany 

Garden crops take up nutrients from the soil to grow and produce food for us. If you don’t give your soil a little love each season, your harvest will shrink. This class will cover techniques and materials for enriching your soil while caring for the environment and being a good steward of the land.

 

To register for classes, please call 518-274-8685 or email Cassie at educator@capitalroots.org.

 

 


 

Composting Success

Composting garden and kitchen scraps is a great way to divert waste from landfills and improve soil texture and fertility. Learn about what types of items should be composted and what should not, how to keep your pile balanced and alive with life, and how to use the finished product.

Super Snacking

Thursday, June 7, 2018 from 6:00 to 7:00pm

Participants will discover a variety of nutritious and delicious meals to make at home that are both perfect for people on the go or a quiet night in. This class will offer tastings of the recipes discussed and demonstrations on prepping and finishing.
