Soil Testing for Farmers Webinar Wednesday May 27 6-7:30 PM Online
Healthy soils are living soils, and soils abundant with life sequester more carbon, infiltrate and hold more water, allow for greater root penetration, and resist erosion. Learn about how to evaluate your soil for indicators of health and life. Caro will demonstrate several easy but informative soil health assessment protocols at Morganics Family Farm. As we explore these tests, Caro will discuss how to interpret results and why they are helpful to understanding soil carbon dynamics, fertility, and resilience. This workshop is part of an NRCS Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG), a collaboration of NOFA CT, Mass, and NJ. Caro Roszell is the NOFA/Mass Education Director, Soil Carbon Program Coordinator and CIG Project lead. This workshop is free, please register to receive link.
