Event Description

Get a practical understanding of your soil with this workshop that combines lecture and hands-on lab activities using soil from participants’ gardens.

Egan will lead the group through an analysis of the structure and texture of their soil, test the pH, and look for living soil organisms. Pooling the results to look for trends and connections, you will interpret the results, compare the different soils and discuss how it relates to healthy plants and gardens. Bring a small sample of your soil (approx. 2 cups) in a clear glass/plastic jar with a good lid. Bring your lunch.
