Event Description

Class 1: 

The better we understand and manage agricultural soil, the better it can continue to fulfill that role. This class is the first in a four-course workshop series on soil theory and related management practices.  We will start this series by taking a look at soil formation and horizons, its characteristics, and soil components. Then we will look at soil texture and structure - two of the most important factors in determining soil quality and management approaches.


Date: 1pm-4pm Saturday February 11, 2012

Location: UBC Farm 6182 South Campus Road, Vancouver BC

Cost: $20 (+1.49 registration fee) or register for all four classes and save $10.
