Intro to Soils

July 12, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Soil is not only the medium in which all plant life on Earth is housed, it is also a living entity all of its own. Join Timpson Creek Farm Project Manager Darby Weaver and learn about the dynamic nature of soil. From particles, to micro flora and fauna, to the signs of deficiencies in plants; all will be explored within the context of the greater natural rhythms that guide soil processes.

Bring in a soil sample from your yard, forest, compost, or garden and examine it under the microscope with the class. Come learn not only what is happening within the soils around your own region and how to best support them, but also why soil as an ecosystem has the power to save our Planet.
