Gardners can learn more about improving the health of their soil at a free program at 7 p.m. on May 30 at McCandless Town Hall.
Juliette Olshock, an instructor with the Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, will lead the presentation on soil health and composting.
Olshock is a graduate of Slippery Rock University, where she studied sustainable agriculture and permaculture design. She teaches courses on edible forests and permaculture design and worked on the sustainability lab at Chatham University.
The program is the first in a series of events about sustainable home gardening planned by the town’s Environmental Advisory Committee.
