Home and garden news: 'Soil sommelier' speaks to Santa Rosa Garden Club

The man known as the "soil sommelier," whose mantra is "compost, compost and mulch, mulch," will get gardeners thinking in new ways about the ground beneath their feet during a series of upcoming talks.

Stephen Andrews will deliver a "State of Our Soils" address before the Santa Rosa Garden Club at 1 p.m. March 24, incorporating scientific research, practical wisdom and humor.

On Tuesday, March 18, he will explore the topic, "Drought, Soil and Your Backyard: Making Every Drop Count" during a 7:30 p.m. talk before the local chapter of The California Native Plant Society.

Both meetings are open to nonmembers at no charge and will be held at the Luther Burbank Art & Garden Center, 2050 Yulupa Ave., Santa Rosa.
