Growing Healthy Soils

Soil is the foundation from which all plants grow. If your soil cannot provide plant roots the nutrients, air, water, beneficial microbes, and physical support they need to grow, your plants will never thrive. This class will focus on common soil problems, how to diagnose them, and how to improve your soil with compost, cover crops, and other soil amendments.

Review the slides from this class.

For an in-depth understanding of soils take Soils 101, a self-paced online course offered by N.C. Cooperative Extension and NCSU’s Soil Science Department. Cost of the course, which covers nine modules, is $30. Learn more and register online.
