Soil Health for Perennial Fruit Crops
June 24 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm$40
Managing orchard fertility is about more than just fertilizer. The fact is your orchard soil is a giant digestive engine, chewing up carbon, nitrogen, and minerals to feed not only your trees but the soil food web. In this workshop, we’ll discuss the basics of your soil so you can better understand what’s going on right under your feet, the mineral connection, and what you can do to improve the soil’s health and overall vitality to grow better fruit. Last year we discussed the basics of soil chemistry, physical characteristics, and soil biology. This year we’ll focus more on the practical aspects of what you can do to holistically improve your soils, but we’ll also go over some basics methods you can use to assess your overall soil health and fertility.
