Soil School 2022
April 5 - April 28
Registration is open for Soil School 2022!
This year’s Soil School is a return to our roots. We’ll explore emerging soil knowledge which turns out to be not-so-new. Soil science can get complex, but the solutions soil holds are surprisingly simple. We’re getting back to the basics of soil.
Soil experts will share their knowledge and be available to answer your questions in a series of soil-related webinars across the month of April — all free!
Join us and Tualatin Soil and Water Conservation District for the 10th year of celebrating the foundation of all life on Earth! Soil experts will share their knowledge and be available to answer your questions in a series of soil-related webinars across the month of April.
