Wednesday, June 22, 2011, 9:00 am – 3:45 pm
Bradford Area, Simcoe County
Join the OMAFRA Soil Team as we explore by bus soil, nutrient and water management issues in Simcoe county.
While still featuring soil pits and loads of hands-on, in-field activities, the workshop has been revised to offer new information and opportunities for repeat soil workshop participants.
Subject Areas Planned:
• soil erosion
• phosphorous—and why we should care
• soil water and drainage
• nutrients—composts and manures
• soil texture and structure
The program will feature a series of farm/in-field stops with additional learning opportunities on the bus.
Cost: $80.00 or $60.00 for OSCIA members (includes: lunch, refreshments, reference materials). A confirmation letter and a map to the meeting location will be sent by email/fax to all registrants.
*Dress appropriately – i.e.: work boots, hat, bug spray & sunscreen. Bring your own knife or soil trowel.*
