Soil Health: Understanding, Testing, and Maintaining Your Garden Soil

 
Healthy plants require healthy soil, yet we too often take soils for granted and think of them as only the means to an end (crop production). This class will help us understand soil as a functioning ecosystem — a key factor in the natural cycle of nutrients and energy. We will review the basic properties of soil, the living organisms it supports, and the different nutrients required for healthy plants. We will also discuss the importance of soil fertility testing, how to have it done, and how to interpret the lab results. We will then explore the nature and application of different fertilizers and conclude with a summary of recommended practices for promoting soil health.
