Introduction to soil
Time & Location
About the Event
This workshop will include a comprehensive introduction to soil. Why it is important to us now and in the broader context to climate change. What is soil composed of? How to build up good quality soil for growing food. We will also use some techniques to work out what type of soil we are working with (Mason Jar technique and Soil Texture test).
In this workshop we can also discuss why we mulch our raised bed, for water retention, less soil compaction and added nutrients over time. We will then proceed to lay compost mulch onto the community garden bed (if the workshop is at the end of the growing season).
