27th May Workshop - Soil tests for Home Gardeners
with Marina Alonso (9.30 am)
A great opportunity to bring in a soil sample & do some soil testing. This is a fun, practical workshop where you get to examine your soil sample. We will examine your soil texture, soil (aggregate) stability, pH & Electrical Conductance (EC). After setting up our soil tests all these soil parameters will be explained in a practical way. Clay, loam & sandy soils have different water & nutrient holding properties for instance. Have you ever wondered just how prone to erosion your soil is and what can you do about it? Bring in a soil sample.
Marina has completed a Ba. App. Sc. in Production Horticulture and is currently finalising her PhD in Soil Microbiology.
