Tues, April 5: Farmers Market Institute Workshop

.. an opportunity for #Mountainair gardeners, growers and prospective #MtrFGMkt vendors to "Learn How to Make Your Soil Do What YOU Want" ... now if we could only apply that to the rest of our lives, but ya gotta start somewhere.

The Santa Fe Farmers' Market Institute invites us all, not just vendors... 

The third workshop in the Santa Fe Farmers' Market Institute's late winter/early spring professional development series to help Market vendors build their businesses is one that we thought would be of interest to more than just vendors, so we are opening it up to friends and customers of the Market and their own friends. 

The workshop "Making Your Soil Do What You Want It To Do" will be presented by an expert considered by many to be the "Guru of Soil," Dr. Ron Godin, from the Colorado State University Extension. This workshop is designed to help you better understand what your soil is telling you by observing yields, understanding the messages communicated by weeds and disease problems, how to act on this information, and what makes good soil.

The two hour workshop will take place at the Santa Fe Farmers' Market Pavilion on Tuesday, April 5, with a free light dinner starting at 5:30 followed by the main program at 6:00. As we expect this to be a popular workshop, we ask that you RSVP if you wish to attend by calling the Institute at 505 983-7726 or sending an email to david@farmersmarketinstitute.org so that we know how much food we need for dinner and how many chairs to set up.

We hope that you will join us for what should be an informative evening!
