Soil Science

Urban soils are often abused soils, but they can be regenerated. This practical workshop addresses the identification of soil problems and instructs on how to jump start the soil regeneration process. Together we'll take a look at your topsoil, so bring a topsoil sample (about 1/2 gallon), and be prepared to get your hands dirty.

Class content will be relevant to both beginner and intermediate students.

PLEASE bring a soil sample, students won’t get much out of the class if they do not bring a soil sample.
