Can you think of anything on earth not connected to soil? Do we treat our soil like dirt? This introductory class covers the major soil components, soil texture, soil structure, soil management for your home and community, soil biology, and the magic of soil. Includes indoor demonstrations and outdoor activities. We will take soil samples at Shaw Nature Reserve to determine soil texture, identify soil horizons, and learn about soil formation. Participants may bring a small sample of soil from their home garden or yard to determine the soil texture.
