In the presentation, Life in the Soil: A Hidden World, Mr. Snodgrass will share how to get lawns, ornamental landscapes and edible gardens healthy the sustainable way by supporting natural biological cycles in soil.

Creating healthy, living landscapes is a trend that improves human health and benefits declining populations of bumble bees, honey bees, butterflies and other insect pollinators. Discover the allure and value of pollinators when Ms. Foss presents Gardening for Pollinators.
