Dirt & Dessert: Art & the Science of Soil

March 21, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

| $20

The first day of spring ushers in dreams of future flowers and garden bounty, but did you know that a plant’s success or failure is largely dependent on soil?  Enjoy desserts and wine at sunset with LandLab artist Jake Beckman and soil experts.  We’ll explore soil basics, offer free soil testing (bring a sample of at least 2 cups of soil from your garden), learn how soil has inspired Jake Beckman, and take a tour of our greenhouse.  Join us for a delightful evening of interdisciplinary discussion and discovery.

JD Cakes will be featuring a soil inspired dessert for Dirt and Dessert!

Registration extended!  We still have a few spots left, so please register by Friday.

Special member price: $15
