Soil Health and Compost Basics, Part 2

This event is hosted by Partnerships Academy.

Partnerships for Parks, NYC Parks GreenThumb, Cornell Cooperative Extension, and New York Restoration Project bring you a two-part learning series on soil vitality and its impact on plants. Plant health is directly linked to the health of the soil it’s growing in. If we take care of the soil, the soil will take care of our plants and crops.

Join us for a hands-on workshop that will build on our knowledge of soil health basics and dive into practical ways of assessing and improving soil health. We will look at an example of a thriving garden compost system and see how compost amendments affect different soil types.

Prepare to get your hands dirty! This tri-lingual workshop will be offered in English, Spanish, and Cantonese.

Featured speakers:

  • Makela Elvy, Urban Garden Specialist, Cornell Cooperative Extension
  • Adder Chu, Education & Events Coordinator, NYC Parks GreenThumb
