Why: To provide an in-depth overview of soil biology, testing, and remediation


If you can measure it, you can manage it.


Join us as we explore the physical, chemical, and biological processes of the soil.  Learn about the interrelationships between soil biology and soil nutrient chemistry, so you can better manage the soil system thereby improving your crops and soil remediation practices.


  • Break down residue biologically this winter
  • Let soil organisms do the work for you
  • Reduce your need for petroleum based product inputs



Your own soil's history, chemistry and biological makeup has unique management implications.  We'll give you the tools to work with your system rather than against it, saving you time and money.


WORKSHOP SPECIAL ON SOIL BIOLOGY TESTING:  You are encouraged to have your soil tested in our laboratory prior to the workshop so we can take a more in-depth look at your soil biology report as a class. On the testing order form near the amount total please write WORKSHOP 2014 to receive 50% off testing services for ONE “Advanced Biology Package” soil sample, a $72.00 savings! (Find sampling instructions and tesing form here. Mark WORKSHOP on the form.)  Samples must be received by October 6 to allow time for testing to be done and ready for the workshop.
