      Carbon Economy Series: Three-day seminar on creating healthy soil organically. Learn how to sequester more carbon and replenish the biology of the earth’s soil membrane with natural practices.
      Compost Contest: Santa Fe’s green thumbs are invited to prove if their compost is competitive during a compost contest. Entries will be inspected under a microscope to identify the different kinds of bacteria, fungal mass, protozoa and nematodes in compost samples. Cash prizes will be awarded.
