Welcome to Part 1 of the Victory Gardens Basics Series – Soil!

Welcome to the Victory Gardens basics series. In this 4 part series, I’m going to teach you about the three key ingredients to a healthy garden. Soil, Sun & Water.

Here, in part one of this series we discuss soil. As a gardener, you need to know what soil consists of, what makes “good” soil, and what it does for your plants.

By the end of this lesson you will be able to

  • Describe soil components by size and behavior
  • Describe fertile soil by soil component ratio 
  • Understand the role of the living organisms in and on the soil 
  • Understand basic soil chemistry as required by most vegetable crops
  • Identify fertile soil using your senses
  • Protect and Care for the soil ecosystem
