That’s just the way it is,” says Paul James, adding, “And now’s the time to begin.” Let Paul walk you through the steps necessary to transform even the worst soil into soil that will support pretty much anything that grows, and hear him explain why soil is alive, and must be cared for just as much as -- if not more than -- plants. Class is free, but registration is required. Limit 200 guests.
