Members $40 Register
Standard $60 Register

Two-part webinar series: February 3 and 10, 1pm to 2:30pm


**If you did not attend the first session, you are still welcome to register. The session 1 recording will be sent to you early the week of February 8th, and you will be able to attend the second session live. Recording of session 2 will also be sent to all registrants.**


Taking soil tests both for nutrients and biology are important management techniques so that organic farmers can increase yields, improve crop quality, reduce weed problems and improve soil health. The first webinar will show you how to take a soil sample, where to send it and help you understand the results when you get them back. You will leave with an understanding of what your nutrient and biological goals should be. The second webinar will consider what amendments and/or cover crops you might use to correct deficiencies you find. This workshop will be useful for growers of all sizes.


Recorded webinars will be available to all registrants after they take place.


Facilitated by Ken Laing of Orchard Hill Farm
