Our Gardens Are Vital for Our Well-Being
Assessing plant health goes beyond just observing size and color. To comprehend plant wellness, it’s important to pay attention to finer details such as color, structure, reproductive ability, uniformity, adaptability, and resistance to environmental stressors. A plant’s taste, aroma, and texture can also reflect its health. We can gain insight into the health of the soil in a simular way, by sharpening our senses, and observing what is happening under our feet.

worth her weight in gold
Faith is worth her weight in gold! Her initial consultation was in depth, full of valuable comments as we toured my garden. Her confidence and enthusiasm gave me confidence as well.
Faith gives extensive follow up also. She explained the soil test results and gave me a detailed chart with directions for the upcoming seasons. And hands on demonstrations. She provided supplies for fertilizing, cover crops, with complete instructions.
Faith in Soil provides so much more than I expected. I feel like I have a caring professional partner at my side.
Faith transformed our farmland
When we first started our micro farm, the land was impassable, covered with thorny thistles. Faith explained how weeds can be a clue as to the trace minerals needed in an area, and after doing soil samples, confirmed what the weeds were telling her. We amended everything and three years later, we have a beautiful hill of clover, violets, and natural grasses. So much more balanced!
