Local News

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – If you’re interested in learning about gardening or how to improve your skills, an upcoming workshop will be able to help.

PHISH stands for People Helping Improve Soil Health. It’s a local urban soil health working group.

In late August the group will partner with the ISU Community Gardens for a free gardening program.

It will feature educational booths about gardening, composting, a live demo about cover crops and more.

PHISH Chairman Paul Pendergast says they also want to raise awareness about the community garden as well as how PHISH can help your gardening efforts.

“We also want to let them know that we’re there to help them, come out to their houses and do soil tests. We give recommendations on how to improve the soil health, help them with their garden,” said Pendergast.

The event will be on August 21 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the ISU Community Gardens at 219 N. 11th Street.
