MGAA: “All About Soil” presentation by Robert Spencer, Spencer Horticultural Solutions

January 31 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Hope you can join us for an evening of learning about soil!  Making amendments and improvements to the soil is best done with a firm foundation of  information about the soil. This session will  address soil sampling, interpreting the results of a soil test and what the component parts mean in terms of soils, as well as some of the ways that soils might be amended and improved. It
will include a brief question period at the end of the webinar.
