How’s Your Soil Doing? Field Assessments for Your Farm and Garden

November 16, 2020 @ 5:30 pm 7:00 pm

Join NOFA-NY to learn how to measure the level of biodiversity and other aspects of soil health. Soil carbon proxy tests can be performed with simple materials you might already have at home. These DIY soil tests will help you get an idea of how well your soils are supporting life and storing carbon on your farm or in your garden. We’ll discuss management recommendations based on the diverse practices and assessment data we found at farms across New York.

This webinar features vegetable operations. Presenters will include:

  • Paul Loomis, Growing Family Farms in Spencerport
