Soil Health Workshops for Agriculture, Washington County
Fact: One inch of good quality topsoil takes 500 years to produce. Join us to learn more about how to improve our most valuable resource – the soil beneath our feet! Each workshop will include presentations on what soil health is and how to improve it, as well as hands-on demos in the field. You will take home a free textbook on soil health and enjoy a free lunch, provided by our sponsors Recology Inc. and Soil Test Consultants.
