Students will learn how healthy soils are made, how they are degraded and how they can be made healthy again. science, chemistry, plant biology, soil biology, polyculture planting practices. 
I am a certified Permaculture teacher through Permaculture Institute of North America with a P.D.C. from the Permaculture Association of the U.K. I also hold certificates in Soil Science via Cornell Small Farms Program and in Sustainable Global Food Systems via Edinburgh University. I have worked in agriculture and horticulture from a very young age and presently design and build gardens for public and private clients. I write curriculums for both public and private schools and programs. 
Homework Offered
Students will be encouraged to source soil samples in medium sized jars for soil profile testing. Students will be encouraged to explore soils in whatever conditions are available.
