Soil is arguably the most important component in a successful garden; it’s what feeds and aerates your plants. Good soil is a microcosm filled with microorganisms that transform organic matter into food your plants can digest. Only with good soil will your plants thrive.
How do you know if you have good or bad soil? The only definitive way to know for sure is to have it tested.
On March 17 from 2-4 p.m., Jeff Jerome, co-owner of Grow Organic, and Dennis Carlson, OSU Master Gardener, will discuss the importance of testing and amending your soil to get the best results possible. The cost of the class is $5 to cover a basic soil test (ph, NPK) that will be done in class.
Class size is limited to 10 people. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to reserve a spot. Include your name, email, phone number and number of people.
Grow Organic is located at 2035 12th St., Hood River.
