An upcoming workshop will give you advice on how to test and improve your soil. Called “Digging into Soil Health: What Tests Can Tell Us About Our Soil,” the event is set for 1–4:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14, in Dayton, ahead of the annual conference of the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA).

Bring soil test results
Leading the soil health workshop will be members of CFAES’ Soil Balancing Research Team, who say participants should bring their own soil test results with them to the workshop, where they’ll get help “interpreting what the numbers mean.”
At the end, the team says, workshop participants will “walk away with a better understanding of soils, soil testing, and soil health; be able to successfully navigate soil test reports; and learn concrete steps to improve soil health in their fields.”
