Treasures in a compost pile??? Yes! Compost and soils are more than just dirt.  They share stories, are homes for the most amazing creatures, and have a very serious job to do for our planet. Without these treasures, there would be no Goodwin Forest! Join Master Naturalist Lynn Kochiss as we examine samples and dig to discover the secret recipe for soil.  Bring garden gloves and small spades if you have them, or borrow ours for this program.For more information and to register, visit https://www.friendsofgoodwinforest.org/homeschool.html.
