“The keys to healthy soil are understanding how soil works and regularly assessing the health of your soil.”
That is the opinion of Kristy Youman from Soil Land Food, who is dedicated to making soil science accessible and equipping landholders with the tools they need to monitor the state of their soils.
Next Thursday, March 30 Kristy is the key speaker at a free, practical day of soil health inspiration, organisation by Karuah and the Great Lakes Landcare and Hunter Local Land Services.
The workshop will be held at Stroud
“Soil is the key natural resource our agriculture and our civilisation depend upon, local Landcare co-ordinator Joël Dunn said.
“So, promoting practices that maintain and improve soil health is one of our primary goals as a Landcare network.”
Kristy will take workshop participants on an interactive journey into the life of soils, and will demonstrate practical, easy methods to assess and monitor soil health. Soil Land Food’s “Rapid Assessment of Soil Health” (RASH) provides a framework to quickly and meaningfully assess your soil using readily available materials and tools.
