Re: A composter in every plot
The man loves to travel -- do a Google search and check out his faculty
page at the University of Maryland -- if you're having a conference, he'll
probably come out and talk -- he really likes talking to "folks in the
field" about how they can improve/take good care of their soil.
This guy Ray Weil
sounds great, hope I get to hear him one day.
Whoever is working on ACGA conference speakers should take note and contact
him to give a couple of talks through an upcoming conference -- I don't
think there's anyone who knows more about soil AND can explain highly
technical information well.
And those slides of plant roots following worm trails through the hardpan
are just *too* cool. Make you feel better that even if you only get
horrible (sub, in my case) soil for your community garden, you really can
make it productive with what you have on hand.
