If you want to grow healthy and safe food for your bodies
in an urban community like Aurora, IL this is the talk for you.
Our presenter this month, USDA Soil Scientist for Aurora, Kristine Ryan points out that:
It is rare that in this urban jungle we give too much thought to the living ecosystem below our feet!
Soil is the foundation of life and we all should know a little bit about it in order to conserve it.
With only 2% of the U.S population living on farms, it’s more important than ever to reach the urban sector to connect them back to the land.
Urban farms, community gardens, and farmers markets are more prevalent due to the growing interest in “local” food.
This discussion is geared to individuals who just want to know more about how to create safe and sustainable food sources.
