Join Arkansas Sustainability Network (ASN) for a Soil Block Workshop, tomorrow at 1 p.m. at Willow Springs Market Garden (4924 Willow Springs Road) in Little Rock.
In Europe, the use of small blocks of soil, like a sandcastle, are a very common way to start seeds. No plastic container needed. At this workshop, Robert Lashley of Willow Springs Market Garden will show you how to make your own blocks. The composition of the growing medium will be discussed as well as the correct amount of moisture to add and the actual use of the blocking tools. Printed instructions provided, and attendees take home twelve 2-inch soil blocks for their home gardens. Limit 10 people; Cost $7.50.
