Don't Treat Your Soil Like Dirt

06 Nov 2021 10:00am - 06 Nov 2021 11:30am

A workshop on the key characteristics of soil, their importance, and how to maintain healthy garden soil. The soil is the foundation of a healthy garden, whether it is a lawn, a vegetable garden or a simple flower garden. Roger McLenaghen of Lincoln University will present the workshop at the Lincoln Envirotown Community Gardens. Roger is a senior tutor in the Soil Science Department. He runs the soil science laboratories for undergraduate classes, and lectures to Diploma students. Bring along an ice-cream container of your vegetable garden soil if you would like to have it assessed. Lincoln Envirotown Community Gardens are located on James St, behind the Maternity Hospital. Please park on the street. Gold coin donation appreciated to support the Community Gardens.
