Biological Management of Soils for Farmers and Gardeners
Saturday, March 17, 10am – noon, Office Building; $25
This workshop will demystify soil science and basic plant physiology for home gardeners and farmers.
Biological management practices focus on the bottom of the food chain, the microbiology which supports plant health. Participants will gain a basic understanding of how specific nutrients relate to plant functions. The application of this knowledge yields crops loaded with nutrients, great flavor, improved shelf-life, and improved resistance to pest and disease pressure. Practical skills, such as soil sampling, interpreting soil test results, and choosing fertilizers, will be discussed and demonstrated.
Attendees will join Glynwood’s Dave Llewellyn for a presentation and walk through the vegetable operation, with plenty of time for Q & A. This workshop is intermediate level, for gardeners and farmers. Participants should expect to walk about a half mile during this workshop, some uphill.
The $25 workshop fee may be paid at the door; it includes morning coffee and tea. To register,call Anita Barber at 845-265-3338.
