Soil is Life - Restoring the Soil Food Web
Thursday, May 31, 2012 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Saint Marks Church, Third and Alvernon
Dr. Mitchell Pavao-Zuckerman
Ecosystem Ecologist of Biosphere 2 and B2 Earthscience
Join Watershed Management Group’s Tucson Co-op to celebrate the end of our busiest season to date and to revel in anticipation of the coming monsoons, with our semi annual local foods potluck and lecture.
This event will be held in conjunction with our newest Soil Stewards program and we are excited that Dr. Mitchell Pavao-Zuckerman (of the University of Arizona’s Biosphere 2) will lead an interactive session on the soil food web after the potluck.
Dr Paveo-Zuckerman will discuss its importance for food production, plant growth, and soil water storage. We will examine techniques to enhance soil ecology in the arid urban environment, and help participants develop plans to boost the soil web in their own home landscape.
