The Dirt on Urban Soil (And How to Improve it to Grow Healthy Trees)
Date and Time-
Learn about the soil beneath your feet and how you can care for this living ecosystem to create a healthier landscape above ground. We will begin this workshop by introducing soil biology, chemistry, and physical properties. Then we will walk to several sites within The Arboretum for hands-on opportunities to see (and feel) our urban soils and learn about their connection to the trees growing in them. Participants will learn how to identify the soils on their own property, how to improve these soils over time, and how to select trees that will grow well in our urban environment.
This event is kid-friendly.
