RCARS Learning Days: All About Soils

Hosted by UK Robinson Center
Monday, April 15 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Increase the long-term value added, sustainable income, and sustainable flow of economic, ecological, and social goods and services from the land, natural resources, and people of Eastern Kentucky and the Appalachian Region.

All About Soils Workshop:
Participants will learn firsthand about soil genesis, soil microbiology, soil textures, soil nutrient management, and soil-plant relationships. Students will visit an on-site soil pit to understand soil horizons and the role of roots in the soil environment. Each student will collect two cups of soil and plant a seed inside to take home and visualize the difference in how the same type of seed may germinate and grow differently in diverse types of soil. The basic premise of this course is aimed at providing a better understanding of where our food comes from, and the role of soil in feeding the world.
