Event Description


Soil is the foundation of terrestrial life, when well managed it can mean a bountiful crop for farmers and home gardeners alike. In this four part series on soil participants will start with the basic principles of soil formation, and learn how understanding soil properties ultimately leads to better management practices and healthy ecosystems. This course is intended for those folks interested in learning about soils, and will deal with both the practical and technical aspects of soil science.

Cost: $70 (+ registration fee) for all four classes or $20(+registration fee) for individual classes.
