In this class, we will discuss how the Earth speaks to us, through the cries for help underneath the ground that we are just now beginning to hear. We will discuss things to look for when working with compost and determining whether you are on the right track or need to make adjustments. We will discuss how the elements help us to understand the language of the Earth, and so much more!
