Soil Health & Edible Landscapes
with Hanover Garden Club

Join the Hanover Garden Club at the Montshire for a discussion on “Soil Health & Edible Landscapes” with Cat Buxton from Grow More, Waste Less.

The program will begin at 1pm with a short business meeting prior to the talk. Refreshments will be served at 2:15​pm.

Can we as gardeners and land managers help to slow water down, deepen watersheds, increase biological soil health and create conditions for thriving ecosystems, all while providing food and flowers for humans? This presentation will deepen your interest in building healthy soil and leave you inspired to get involved in your own backyard, schoolyard, and public lands to deepen the roots of security and community resilience for future generations.

A self-described microbe geek, Cat loves to talk about bugs, soil, gardening, and composting. She manages the edible schoolyard at Thetford Elementary School, weaving it into K-6 project based learning, and is a technical guide for school compost systems. She leads Land Listener workshops with the Soil Carbon Coalition, and organizes the Upper Valley Apple Corps and a host of other projects including the Vermont Healthy Soils Coalition.
