    Sorry, this class has been postponed until April 28, 2013. The concepts in the award-winning gardening book "Teaming with Microbes: The Organic Gardener's Guide to The Soil Food Web" are both amazing and simple: no one fertilizes the redwoods or uses 'icides' (pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, etc.) to keep them healthy. How does that work? It is the fascinating biology that inhabits the soil and helps our plants thrive, all without synthetic chemicals. Author Jeff Lowenfels will help you understand "the vast Shakespearean entourage that makes up the web in and on the soil." This essential information for all gardeners will help you give up chemicals and garden in a way that is both much healthier and vastly easier. Book-signing will follow the lecture. Pre-registration required. Parking included. (919) 668-1707.
