Digging Deeper Webinar Series: All About Garden Soil
February 19 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
The Zoom Meeting ID is: 920 0799 1742
Soil provides the network to deliver air, water, and nutrients to your plants. Knowing your soil, and understanding what to do to improve it, is the key to gardening success.
On Saturday, February 19, from 10:30 am to 12 noon, Meghan Adamire, Clallam Conservation District Planner, and John Stednick, Clallam County Master Gardener, will teach home gardeners how to achieve the best garden soil possible. Adamire and Stednick will discuss the nutrients necessary for good plant health and describe how soil characteristics impact nutrient availability to plants. They will outline the steps needed to collect a soil sample for testing and how to amend soil in response to test results.
Meghan Adamire graduated from Oregon State University with a bachelor’s degree in Rangeland Management and Animal Science. She has been a conservation planner with the Clallam Conservation District since 2004. Among her many responsibilities, Adamire manages the district’s native plant sale and soil testing program and helps home gardeners interpret soil test results and amend their soil.
John Stednick graduated from the University of Washington with degrees in Forest Management and Forest Sciences. He worked in natural resources throughout his professional career and provided international consultations on water and soil resources management and sustainability. Stednick joined Clallam County Master Gardener in 2017 and has worked many hours at the Master Gardener Woodcock Demonstration Garden, growing vegetables for the Food Band and helping build a composting bioreactor for the garden.
This presentation is part of Clallam County Master Gardener’s Digging Deeper educational series. Digging Deeper presentations are held on the first and third Saturdays of most months and cover basic gardening topics relevant to many home gardeners. Sessions are scheduled for 90-minutes to allow for demonstrations (or videos) and questions from viewers.
