Alix Wagon Wheel Museum is fortunate to invite you to 2 Gardening Zooms in March:

In Gardens, Horticulture, Soil on March 9, 2021 at 3:30 PM

1.) On March 17, 6:30 tp 8:30 p.m.:Mike Dorion, Aka the Compost Kid, loves talking about soil.  Starting with a Gardening class put on by the Calgary Horticulture Society, he became immersed. It continued with his Permaculture Design Certificate, SPIN Farming, Greenhouse Design, Compost Facility Operators Certificate, and mentoring in Regenerative Soil Systems and Soil Microbiology. He is currently working on his Soil Food Web Consultant role with the Soil Food Web put on by Elaine Ingham, and sits on the board of Calgary Permaculture Guild.  It all starts in the soil.  Anyone who has ever grown anything knows this, but do we really have a clear understanding of what is actually going on down there.  Let’s dive into the nitty gritty of it all and learn about how to care for the life in the soil and what they need.  With that in mind we can increase our health of the soil and help mitigate the list of problems that get in our way.

2.) On March 25, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Elaine Rude will present on drought tolerant perennials.. :Elaine is a Master Gardener, instructor, garden designer and obsessed gardener.  She gardens on a large property outside of Calgary where she indulges her passion for home grown produce, fruit and flowers.  No stranger to the challenges of country gardening Elaine is working to develop a gorgeous country garden with plants well adapted to her conditions.
