Waterwise Wednesday: National Garden Day

Healthy gardens start with healthy soil.

“Healthy soil contains aggregates that help it bind together, preventing erosion and run-off. It can hold more water, so plants fare better in drought. It contains more bacteria and fungi that help plants fight diseases and pests. And healthy soil also contains more minerals and nutrients that feed plants.” (Rodale Institute.org)
