You hear a lot about the importance healthy soil for gardening of any type. Come and hear Jeff Thompson discuss compost and mulch at the Snohomish County Fruit Society meeting on Thursday, May 14, 2015. The meeting starts at 7 pm at the Boys and Girls Club of Snohomish, 402 2nd St, Snohomish, WA 98290. A brief business meeting will precede the presentation.
Jeff Thompson is a lifelong gardener, who began growing tomatoes since age 8. Jeff became a Snohomish County Master Gardener shortly after retiring and moving here from Texas in 2002, where it is hard to grow anything, except sweaty. He has a small irrigation business which specializes in drip irrigation, and he teaches low volume (drip irrigation) at Edmonds Community College and for WSU Extension. Besides soils and proper watering, his passions include greenhouse management, propagation, and, of course, tomatoes. He is also attempting to become a better beekeeper.
