Lee Miller wants to tell you that soil is alive. Miller is an avid home gardener with more than 130 varieties of dahlias, a 30,000 square feet garden, and a small orchard on the Lined home he shares with his wife.
He’s also a Master Gardener with the University of California Cooperative Extension and has more than 1,000 hours of volunteer work to his name. Miller has worked with the group for six years and gives free presentations to groups several times a year. On Saturday 30 local backyard gardeners gathered at the city of Stockton Delta Water Supply Project Building to learn about Miller’s tips to use compost for a healthier soil.
