Every organic farmer knows they are not feeding plants; they are feeding the soil that feeds the plants. It takes about 500 years to replace 1 inch of topsoil in nature. We are losing valuable topsoil at a rate almost 40 times faster than it is being replenished. The Green Education Center is providing a 4-day workshop on soil building to help reconnect us to one of our most valuable natural recourses: the soil. This retreat will include hands-on experience taking dirt from sand to black fertile soil, designing a new garden, and implementing the design at the Sivananda Yoga retreat.
