KNOWING YOUR SOIL IS THE KEY TO SUCCESSFUL GARDENING

March 9


Wednesday, March 9

6-9pm

The health and quality of your soil cannot be underestimated when it comes to producing a successful garden. In fact, many plant diseases and problems start in your soil. Sustainable management and conservation of healthy soil leads to greater long term productivity and profitability, less environmental degradation, lower greenhouse gas emission, and ultimately better human health. This workshop will provide you with the most up-to-date information on understanding, assessing, and sustainably managing your soil.
