Soil Series #3: Improving Your Garden Soil

 Registration is closed for this event

Learn the tricks of the trade for improving your soils from the Master Gardener and Master Composter teams. We’ll talk about tips and tools for working in tricky clay soils. Learn techniques for improving your soil fertility, tilth, microbial and fungal diversity through tools such as sheet mulching, compost and vermicompost, cover crops, compost teas and juices, biochar, broad forking, double digging, and more. If the snow melts and reveals the soil below, we’ll head outside and demonstrate some of these techniques hands-on and explore the compost demonstration site and take a look at different styles of compost bins and tumblers and chat about the pros and cons of each.

 

Pre-registration is required. Go to the registration page to register and pay online, or call CCE-Tompkins at 272-2292. Pre-registration is highly recommended so participants can be contacted if the class is postponed due to weather.
