Grow to Learn and GreenThumb

Get to know the soil in your garden. If we take care of the soil, the soil will take care of our plants and crops. Meet the microbes and other members of the soil food web who recycle nutrients and learn best practices for soil care.

Please bring a small ziplock bag of soil or compost from your garden if you’d like to look at your soil microbes under a microscope. Workshop attendees who are members of registered GreenThumb community gardens may be eligible to take home a small kit for testing soil nutrients while supplies last.

Pre-registration is required online or by calling (212) 602-5300. Please bring a photo ID and allow time to get through security.
