Learning for Life: Soils workshops for garden and agriculture

Soils are the building blocks for our gardens and are essential for healthy plant growth. This series of workshops will cover the basics of what you might want to know about soil: 1) Introduction to Soils, 2) Soil Management Practices, 3) Soil Test Interpretation, and 4) Soil Fertility.

Classes are held Jan. 14 and 21, Feb. 18, and March 24. All classes are from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Kenai Peninsula College and Kachemak Bay Campus. Register for one or all four. Sorry, but we can accept cash or check only, no credit cards.

Stop by the Cooperative Extension Service office located at 43961 Kalifornsky Beach Road to register, or call 262-5824. In Homer, payment can be made on campus the day of the workshop.
