AT: Soil, Compost, and Mulch

November 9, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


In-Person – Register to Attend

Soil is life. Soil is alive. Without soil, none of us would be here. Come join Joanna Botvin, Education Coordinator at the Houston Botanic Garden, for a dynamic workshop on how to build soil, create compost, and utilize mulch to benefit not only your garden but the earth as a whole.


Joanna Botvin is a permaculturist, herbalist, ethnobotanist, and passionate educator on all things relating to living a regenerative lifestyle. Having studied sociology, psychology, permaculture, and holistic landscape design – Joanna merges these worlds in her teachings to get a whole systems perspective on why we should care about the health of our bodies, our minds, and our planet. Joanna has been a garden educator for many years, and this is where her passion and professional work have merged into one. She loves to garden and design permaculture landscapes, be outside hiking with her dog, swim in natural waters, make medicine with plants, and teach those around here how to become more in tune with nature and the cycles of our bodies.

Registration will close 24 hours before classes Monday-Saturday and 48 hours before Sunday classes.

(After registration you will receive two emails, one is a receipt and the other will be sent 3 days before the class with event details that include Zoom link contact information. Contact [email protected] for questions.)
