About the event

This workshop is the foundation for week 4. Kids do NOT have to take this workshop in order to attend week 4.

Kids will learn about the different soil types. They'll get to walk around the ranch and feel examples of different soil types we have on the property and note the differences. 

They will learn how to build a compost pile, how big to make it, and how to maintain it. They will learn why compost can help improve the soil, the difference between green and brown materials, and the microorganisims in the compost and soil that help break down the things we add to the pile so we can use it more easily.

We will also look at worm jars to see how worms live and work in the soil. We'll learn about good bugs in the garden, and bad bugs. The kids will build a bug hotel for good bugs that they can take home.
