Bay-Friendly One-Day Workshop:
REBUILDING THE SOIL
Presented by ReScape CA
Sponsored by The City of Santa Rosa
What impact does fire have on the soil? We know that soil health is a fundamental element in Bay-Friendly landscaping. As we rebuild, we will need to consider the effects of fire on this key component, and how we can best build and nurture health soils to support landscape resilience!
Join us for this one-day workshop to strengthen your knowledge of soil properties and learn why careful attention to soil building will be one of the most immediate and effective actions we can take to firescape.
