Description
Do you live in a city? Most people do. Under all of this city space, even under the concrete, is a lot of soil, and it’s a complex mixture of minerals, water, air, and organic matter that perform many critical functions. Help the soil serve you by making rain gardens, making and using compost, and making an urban garden.
