This course is designed to give you a comprehensive grounding in one of the most important substances on Earth – soil. Healthy soil is crucial not only to the success of your permaculture design, but also the functioning of the planet and everything that lives on it. We’ll explore the characteristics and constituent parts of soil, as well as look at the ecosystem of microorganisms that make it their home. You will also discover practical methods to improve your soil so that your plants have the best medium in which to grow. The course also takes you through a wide range of garden beds in which you can utilize soil – and gives practical instruction on how to create your own.
