Soil Health and Compost Practicum (Part 2 of 2)

August 5, 2023

Cornell Cooperative Extension's Makela Elvy, Partnerships for Parks, and NYC Parks GreenThumb bring you a two-part learning series on soil vitality and its impact on plants. Plant health is directly linked to the health of the soil it's growing in. If we take care of the soil, the soil will take care of our plants and crops.

This hands-on workshop will build on our knowledge of soil health basics and dive into practical ways of assessing and improving soil health. We will look at an example of a thriving garden compost system and see how compost amendments affect different soil types. Prepare to get your hands dirty! 

A Cantonese interpreter will be available at this workshop.
