Saturday, October 3, 9:00 am – 3:30 pm – Measuring Soil Health and Managing Site Challenges in an Urban Landscape


This hands-on, indoor/outdoor workshop at Garden in the Woods on Saturday, October 3 from 9 – 3:30 introduces the concept of the soil health assessment and the implementation of soil health indicators for evaluating the biological, chemical, and physical attributes of soil as they pertain to the constraints of a site. Use of these soil health indicators will help landscape architects, garden designers, arborists, and landscape professionals determine the appropriate products, tools, equipment, and techniques needed to correct soil constraints and to develop a seasonal maintenance plan for a newly installed landscape, from installation to establishment and on to maturity. Bring a bag lunch. Taught by Chuck Sherzi, Jr., the fee is $86 for NEWFS and Ecological Landscape Alliance members, $104 for nonmembers.
