Dirt of Soil? With Dave Phelps

A Fascinating Look at the Economic and Environmental Value of Building the Life Beneath Your Feet

What’s the difference between dirt and soil? And what difference does it make to you, your work, and your environment? Dirt is dead. Soil is a living, interconnected web of organisms working together to nourish your landscape. Build and support healthy soil to reduce water use, grow more attractive plants, that are heathier and have a longer life span, and you may never have to use synthetic fertilizer again! Come learn the details of Dirt or Soil from Dave Phelps.
