From the Ground Up! Building Healthy Soil & Composting

Adults Registration

Join Janell Wehr from Extension Marathon County for a free class on improving soil health and keeping soil healthy throughout the growing season!

Healthy plants begin with healthy soil. In this interactive web-based class, we’ll learn the basics of soil texture and how to improve our garden soils. We’ll cover the benefits of adding compost to sandy and clay soils, and how to get started with composting this spring. We will also investigate measures to take to protect our garden soil’s health.

Free to attend and registration is required. Click the "Register" button on this page or email Janell at janell.wehr@wisc.edu for more information. An identical class will be held from 7-8 pm on March 18.
