AGC Presents "The Real Dirt About Dirt"

AGC Presents "The Real Dirt About Dirt"



After some social time and a brief business meeting, Andi
Ross will dish "The Real Dirt About Dirt" at the Andover Garden
Club's February membership meeting. As true gardeners know, it's all about the
soil, and Ross' presentation will simplify soil science for both beginners and
experienced gardeners. Attendees will learn how easy it is to restore soil to
its optimum health and productivity by exploiting the virtues of compost,
compost tea, lasagna composting, and vermiculture. In her business, It's
Nature's Way, Ross is committed to taking a sustainable approach to every facet
of gardening, which also means managing the environmental impact on everything
we do from healthy soil preparation to proper plant selection, as well as
sensitivity to local environmental issues.



Andi Ross, proprietor of It's Nature's Way
( www.itsnaturesway.com) based on Plum Island, is a creative landscape designer,
private garden coach, educator, and horticulturist as well as a botanical
artist and painter. She has earned certificates and degrees from a number of
garden- and design-related  institutions,
including the Northeast Organic Farming Association and the Garden Club
Federation of Massachusetts, and has attended the Landscape Institute. She is a
self-proclaimed "plant geek" who is passionate about all things
plants.
