What is soil? Well, it's certainly not dirt! Join the knowledgeable and enthusiastic Stephen Andrews (UC Berkeley Professor Specializing in Soils) in discovering the beauty and complexity of this essential natural resource by examining the physical properties that characterize what soil is. This class will also delve into the question of why we can’t use ‘real’ soil in our nurseries and how the media is formulated differently to support the special needs of native plants. Come prepared to dig in and get your hands dirty!
