Class: UNDERSTANDING AND MANAGING SOILS

February 9 @ 10:00 am EDT - 4:00 pm EDT

$92 - $109

Healthy soil is the basis of healthy plant communities and is necessary for plants to thrive. Join us for this in-depth, full-day workshop to learn how to manage healthy soil.

This intensive class explores the biotic and abiotic components that create native soils and explains how these factors inform local flora. The class takes a closer look at soil structure and soil biology in miniature lab experiments.
