Soil … It All Starts with Good Soil


Did you know that our native soil – Piedmont Ultisols – is the ‘ultimate’ soil. And you were thinking this nasty red clay soil is the worst thing to happen since the Beetles split up…

It all begins and ends with the soil. This course will cover:

  • Components of ultisols
  • Ideal soils composition
  • N:P:K and micronutrients
  • Amending soils to meet your goals
  • Nutrient additions for certain plants/crops
  • Nutrient additions using organic and inorganic fertilizers
  • Composting to generate your own nutrients
  • Free bulk sources of nutrients and mulch in the Greenville Area
  • Methods to deter pests using additives

This class is offered on the following dates and times:

  • January 25, Wednesday, 11:30am-1pm
  • February 4, Saturday, 4-5:30pm

This class mimics Class 2 of our Veggie Course and the price is $30 for 1.5 hours of instruction plus a notebook with all slides and handouts.
