Franklin, MA – The Franklin Garden Club, in conjunction with the Franklin Public Library, will co-sponsor a program on “Creating Environmentally Friendly Soil Health” on Tuesday, March 5, at 7:00 p.m. at the Franklin Library, 118 Main Street, Franklin, MA. The program, open to the public free of charge, will be presented by Donald Demers of Buxton Hollow Farm. The company continues an 18th century sustainable farming tradition, providing natural farm products to the health conscious and environmentally friendly grower.

Demers’ presentation will include discussing the role of the soil biome, how to read a soil lab report, and the part that various minerals and amendments play in the regeneration of the garden soil, including soil for container and raised bed gardens. He will focus on how gardens can be productive without the use of chemical fertilizers. Demers will also answer specific soil questions from attendees.

Buxton Hollow Farm, located in Woonsocket, RI, offers many natural soil amendment products, as well as soil testing.
