Soil Hydration: What It Is, Why It's Important, and How to Achieve It



Amherst Garden Club Side Shoot Program

      Ever wondered how to water your plants more effectively, instead of having water sit on top of the soil, run off, or go straight out the drain holes in your pots? Water is vital to plant health, so watering effectively is important, particularly given increasing frequency of droughts. Learn how soil can become “hydrophobic,” (repel water), and what you can do as you prepare soil, put plants into it, and care for them afterward to keep the soil and the plants alive, happy, and properly hydrated. We’ll provide lots of tips and techniques for you to apply whether you’re gardening outside or inside.

      This interesting topic has become a passion for our speaker, Becky Stoughton. Becky is a past President of the Amherst Garden Club and a Master Gardener through the UNH Cooperative Extension. A transplant from Texas, some years ago, she has rolled up her sleeves and taken hold of the New England way of gardening, knowing winter, each year, will put an end to the gardens until Spring.

Digging Into Native History in New Hampshire

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 7:00 to 8:30 PM

      Abenaki history has been reduced to near-invisibility as a result of conquest, a conquering culture that placed little value on the Indian experience, and a strategy of self-preservation that required many Abenaki to go "underground," concealing their true identities for generations to avoid discrimination and persecution. Presenter Robert Goodby reveals archaeological evidence that shows their deep presence here, inches below the earth's surface.

      Robert Goodby is a professor of Anthropology at Franklin Pierce University in Rindge. He holds a Ph.D. in anthropology from Brown University and has spent the last thirty years studying Native American archaeological sites in New England. He is a past president of the New Hampshire Archeological Society, a former Trustee of the Mount Kearsarge Indian Museum in Warner, and served on the New Hampshire Commission on Native American Affairs. In 2010, he directed the excavations of four 12,000 year-old Paleoindian dwelling sites at the Tenant Swamp site in Keene.
