What we're about
Soil is the beginning and end of all life on this planet, and understanding what makes healthy soil is something every grower should know. The rhizosphere is the dynamic area around a plant’s roots, and is just as important as the environment around its leaves and buds. At this Meetup we will discuss plant physiology, the basics of soil science and how roots interact with everything around them. We will go over pH influences, nutrient cycling, beneficial soil microbes, tilth maintenance, ideal composition for nutrient uptake and how to minimize inputs while maximizing yields. Plants are an integral part of a greater ecosystem and recognizing how everything in the growing cycle is connected is the ultimate tool for any gardener.
