Event Detials

Improve your garden by improving your soil! In the first class of this monthly soil health series, learn the basics of soil science and fertility management for home gardeners and urban farmers. We will cover the basics of soil health and maintenance, how to figure out your soil texture, soil testing options, how to read a soil test, and how to use at home test kits, as well as doing a general overview of fertilizers, soil amendments, and cover crops.

Participants will receive an at-home soil test kit that tests soil for pH and essential plant nutrients. Please bring a cup of your garden soil in a bag to test during the class. Additional soil amendments will be available for purchase based on the results of the tests.

*Jack’s is an inclusive community and does not believe that income should be a barrier to learning. If you are interested in this workshop but unable to pay the full fee, please email admin@jacksfarmsupply.com
