Hey Mark,
I found this cool kids course that meets monthly in Bellingham I beleive may be covered via the Meridian school/homeschool program. It's all about teaching kids earth skills. There"s adult classes that I'm thinking about doing when I can. http://www.wolfcamp.com/wolfjourney/classbham.html

Hi Mark! I hope you & family are well.
I've just added a new discussion that list many of the books I recommend, as I'm often asked that question: http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/group/organic/forum/topics/books

As for your question about “which plants add what to the soil”, it is a good one, and it depends both on what is in the soil and the environmental conditions. I'll think it over as far as recommending a book. (let me know how basic or advanced you are thinking of). Farmer Walter H may also have a recommendation.

You might also consider joining one of our local alternative currency exchange group at http://fourthcornerexchange.com/ for ways to exchange your skills and connect with the abundance our local community has to share.
I've sent you an invite to the Organic Gardener's....Pemaculturist online
group I started on TW:
