Urban soils can pose unique challenges for growers. Overcoming these challenges to get healthy, high-yield crops takes more than just applying fertilizer. Ideal timing, amount, and type of application can vary from plant to plant. And in order to provide optimal nutritional for your crops, first you have to understand the soil you’re working with.
Join us to learn how to identify your soil’s quality and health issues and address them so you can grow healthy crops this year! We will also discuss the opportunities when working with urban soils and how to make the most of your site.
This session is part of a year-long series of workshops called “Growing to the Next Level,” held in partnership with Grow Pittsburgh. Future topics will include: Land access, soil quality, irrigation, pest management, and more!
