Healthy Soils

Healthy soils are the foundation of a productive garden and understanding how they work will help you to make decisions with confidence. In this workshop we’ll cover what makes up a healthy soil, how to assess your soil using simple techniques and selecting the right soil amendments to correct common issues. We’ll show you how to improve your soil using methods that are simple and low cost (or free!), to set you up for a bumper crop next season.

Please note: there is an undercover shelter at this event, but we will be partially outdoors so please dress for the weather on the day and bring a warm and windproof coat.
