Master Gardener Class – February 6, 2018
Great job hanging in there through our first class on Soils and Home Composting.
If you have time (Optional), enjoy listening to this amazing podcast: From Tree to Shining Tree.
This coming week our class will focus on Soils Part II and Vermicomposting (worm composting).
Review Soils readings from last week.
Familiarize yourself with the Soils Chapter of your Online Manual and in particular review:
- Soil and Plant Nutrition a Gardeners Perspective
- Soil Organic Matter
- Using Green Manures — MOFGA Fact Sheet (PDF)
- Natural Sources of Plant Nutrients (PDF)
Optional Reading for a Deeper Understanding of Soil Organic Matter read chapters 1-2 of Building Soils for Better Crops (PDF).
Here is your first class quiz. We will go over this in class on Tuesday. They are for your benefit to make sure you are understanding the main concepts we are teaching in class. They will not be collected. The first take home review that will be collected will come soon.
That’s all for now, see you Tuesday in class,
