Attendees will leave knowing practical principles of organic gardening and have plenty of tips to make their gardens shine in 2018!
It was on a beautiful piece of Illinois farmland that Mark pushed his first shovel into garden soil. After he “grew up”, Mark focused his M.S. degree studies in the Longwood Graduate Program on compost and potting soil. After the Longwood Graduate Program, Mark started The Organic Mechanic Soil Company, LLC in in 2006. Mark has served as a consultant for the EPA and the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, and recently received the Young Professional Award from the Perennial Plant Association.
