GSWCD Hosts Soils Pit Program
Ever wonder what lies beneath your feet? Soils are very complex. There are various types of soils everywhere you go, with benefits and drawbacks to all types. Whether you are planting a garden, reseeding a hay field, constructing a pond or building a structure, knowing your soil types and the characteristics of those soils are essential. The Guernsey Soil and Water Conservation District is putting on a Soils Pit Program on Thursday August 6th at 6:00pm. The location of the event will be at the Hodges Farm at 67410 Oldham Rd. Cambridge OH, 43725. The program will cover everything from soil health and soil structure, to soil testing benefits and teaching the proper technique when soil testing. This is a hands on program, where you will be able to see and feel the different soil layers; humus, topsoil, and subsoil. Presenters will include State Soil Scientist – Steve Prebonic, OSU Extension Educator – Clif Little, and GSWCD Ag Resource Specialist – Jason Tyrell. To register for this free event, please call Jason Tyrell at 740-489-5276 by August 5th.
