University of Washington Botanic Gardens: Sustainable Soil Practices: Managing Soil Health on Your Site (3 CEUs)

Through a combination of lecture, hands-on activities and teamwork, attendees will learn about soil texture, chemistry and biology, and how to interpret soil test results. We’ll introduce new testing approaches that offer insights into overall soil health and discuss innovative applications to address soil problems, meet stormwater requirements, restore construction-impacted soils, and develop a soil management plan. The day will end with a discussion of best practices for disturbed-soil remediation, techniques to promote long-term soil health, and the science behind why mulch matters even more than you may know! Content will be relevant to those working in both traditional landscape settings and natural area restoration.
