Managing orchard fertility is about more than just fertilizer. Your orchard soil is a giant digestive engine, chewing up carbon, nitrogen, and minerals to feed not only your trees but the soil food web. This workshop will cover the basics of understanding your soil and what you can do to improve the soil’s health, biology, and overall vitality to grow better fruit. In short, you’ll leave knowing everything you should know to manage your soils for better crop productivity. Feel free to bring soil or leaf tissue samples for analysis.
Registration fees are $15/person or $25 for two or more people/farm. This event is sponsored by NOFA-NY through funding by the New World Foundation. To register, visit www.nofany.org or call 585-271-1979.
