Soil Health Series: Understanding Growth Media & the Chemistry of Soil


Soil Health Series, Park Academy

You've undoubtedly heard of the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act. But what about the Clean Soils Act...? Why not? Soil is the largest chemical reactor on the planet. Happening beneath our feet are fascinating chemical reactions responsible for immobilizing, filtering, purifying, detoxifying, and recycling. This class will cover: basic nutrient requirements for native plants, how to diagnose nutrient deficiencies and abiotic disorders, how to perform nutrient analysis and to read lab results, and how to calculate fertilizer rates.
