Know Your Soil
Wednesday March 14
CCE Tompkins, 615 Willow Avenue, Ithaca
Cost: $7-$10 (pay what you can afford)
Get up close and personal with your garden soil at this hands-on workshop!
Knowing more about your soil can really help your gardening practice.
Participants can bring in soil samples from their own gardens and will learn to
assess the texture, color, drainage, fertility, pH and type of soil. They will
also learn how to read soil analysis results and how to use the online Web Soil
Survey tool to see detailed information about soils on their property.
Participants should bring a soil sample from their home garden to assess, and a
laptop (if possible) to access the online soil survey tool. A limited number of
CCE laptops will be available for participants to use as well.
Pre-registration is strongly recommended so that we have participants' contact
information on file in case of cancellation due to weather or low enrollment.
or call CCE-Tompkins at 272-2292 and we will help you with online registration
using your input.
