What does your soil need to be healthy?

The Latrobe Catchment Landcare Network is excited to bring Declan McDonald to Gippsland to talk about soil health.

This workshop will be an introduction to soil health, but more importantly, it will help farmers regain control over the fertility of their soils. Topics covered include understanding soil test results, what soils need to be 'healthy', and what good soil looks like.

Core concepts will be discussed in the morning before heading into the field after lunch for a hands-on investigation of soils.

Morning Tea and lunch will be provided.

This is a FREE event.
