Join the Washington County Master Gardeners to learn about techniques to care for your garden soil. Learn to understand key characteristics of soil; the importance of soil pH; ways to avoid soil compaction; creating your own garden mulch; using arbor chips to cover the soil, ordering a soil test, and more.

The in-class portion will be followed by a short 5-minute walk to the WCMGA Education Garden where some soil management techniques are demonstrated, with a hands-on demonstration of taking soil samples to order your soil test.

Sue Ryburn,
 OSU Extension MG Volunteer, will lead the class.

* Qualifies for 1-hour MG continuing garden education credit.
