Thursday, July 26th- Guided Gardening: Home Soil Assessments

PLAYING IN THE DIRT: Home soil texture assessments – how to get your soil to grow what you want based on how it looks and feels! This “course” will help gardeners use their eyes and hands to assess many different types of garden soils. Participants will discuss ways to alter their baseline soils to create functional garden soils by adding composts, manures, sand, peat, etc. This presentation will also discuss general tips on macronutrient additions without getting soil analysis from a lab. YOU WILL GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY!! Bring a few cups/bag of YOUR garden soils to get specific questions asked. PURCHASE TICKETS.
