Nashville Green Drinks, Sat 1/20

From Gardens of Babylon at the Farmer's Market:
Hello everyone. This Saturday we'll be hosting Nashville Green Drinks, a group promoting sustainability in Nashville, for a tour of our newest part of the company the Soil Improvement Division.

We'll meet in the main greenhouse closest to 8th Ave. at 3pm on the 20th.

The purpose of this gathering is to discuss our methods of soil improvement. Improving soil fertility has many benefits. Water and synthetic fertilizer reduction, less disease and pest problems, and healthier plants are the main benefits of the process. The tour will include a deeper look into vermicomposting, compost tea brewing, soil feeding, and microorganisms in action under the microscope.
