Soil is the foundation of agriculture and soil health is the foundation of sustainable farming. A basic understanding of soil and soil health will help start you on the road to achieve success in your farming operation.

In this workshop you will learn about the physical and chemical properties of soils through discussions and demonstrations, and how these properties relate to sustainable agriculture through soil health practices. You will also learn how to sample soils for fertility testing and how to interpret test results.
