Durham County Library and Durham County Extension Present: Sprouting Connection Gardening Lecture Series

Soil Health and Composting

with Extension Agent Ashley Troth

Every Durham gardener knows the frustration: clay (or sometimes sandy!) soils that are difficult to work with. But beyond their bad reputation, Durham’s clays can provide a great foundation for edible and ornamental gardeners, provided you know how to balance drainage, organic matter, nutrients, and pH. Join Ashley Troth (Extension Horticulture Agent) to learn how to make the most of your garden’s soil and composting best practices. Participants will learn about soil biology and structure, soil testing, nutrient cycles and flows, and how to manage nutrients and fertilizers to get the most out of their slice of Durham soil!
