PEEC News:

Do you struggle to garden in soil that just blows away in the New Mexico spring winds? Join arborist Laural Hardin at PEEC to learn organic methods of enriching your soil, 6:30-8 p.m. Thursday, May 2.

Hardin will demonstrate how to feed and nourish not just your crops, but your soil, too. Home gardeners can unwittingly harm beneficial soil microbes with synthetic fertilizers.  

These cheap, abundant products degrade the integrity of your soil and prevent plants from thriving. She will discuss organically based fertilizing methods and give tips on ways to naturally enrich soils.

Laura Hardin is a certified arborist and integrated pest management specialist. She specializes in diagnosing and solving tree and garden problems.

With an interest in helping people understand the natural balance in the landscape, Hardin teaches how to avoid most issues by learning to see the root cause. She loves to share her knowledge with hands on workshops and fact filled talks, so come prepared to learn!

Hardin’s workshop for gardeners will be held at PEEC (Pajarito Environmental Education Center), 3540 Orange St. The cost is $6, or $5 for PEEC members.
