Join In The Year of Soil!

Hello! I'm Dirt Ball!

You'll find me here on this cool new website and on posters on the big red barn this gardening season. I will be sharing all the new happenings with our new composting program. 


To start out, soon we will have a small Soil Education Center (The SHEC). It's being built by Master Composter Alex Soleil DeLong and garden volunteers over on the south side by the Giving Garden beds. The SHEC will be a place to come and take a workshop with Alex and other Master Composters. Attending a workshop will count as one hour towards your 8hr commitment. See our new Calendar on this website for workshop dates coming soon plus all other events and activities!



Picardo has some of the finest soil west of the Cascade Mountains. Soils around the world are becoming more and more depleted. Soil sustains us all! Work with me to help feed the soil of Picardo so that its richness lasts for future generations of gardeners!


My motto is: Be Loyal to the Soil!
