Event Description

Friday, April 21, 2017 (9 am - 5 pm)
Inn at Morro Bay
Early bird price for the full-day workshop is: $65 and includes lunch
Early bird registration ends March 31 (workshop cost is $95 starting April 1) 
6 Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) CEUs have been approved (4 Soil & Water Mngt, 2 Nutrient Mngt) 

We are pleased to host Dr. Elaine Ingham in San Luis Obispo at very special pricing thanks to generous support for our healthy soils and climate-smart agriculture initiatives from USDA's Western SARE program and the Harold J. Miossi Charitable Trust.

The soil foodweb is comprised of an incredible array of organisms that range in size from tiny one-celled bacteria, algae, fungi, and protozoa, to more complex nematodes and micro-arthropods, to the visible earthworms, insects, small vertebrates and plants. As these organisms eat, grow and move through the soil, they help clean water and air, and release nutrients for healthy plants. Understanding who they are and how they work together enables farmers and gardeners alike to harness their power for more environmentally-sound and economical management of a wide range of agro-ecosystems.

Workshop topics will include soil foodweb principles, soil organism identification, how to make aerobic compost/humus to enhance soil life, making and applying biological extracts and teas, and case studies in improving soil ecosystems. Participants will gain a fundamental understanding of the way soil biology drives plant nutrition and promotes agricultural health.

A must for all who seek a comprehensive understanding of soil and plant health!
