Learn more about the science of soil, how to conserve it, and how to properly use soil to grow your own food!

Dirt is what you find under your fingernails, but soil is what grows your food! It supports plant growth, affects water and air quality, and helps clean wastes. Learn more about this complex and dynamic natural resource during this interactive program with the Urbana Park District’s Landscape Coordinator Georgena Donoho. Participants will explore how soil is made, methods to conserve it and the chemistry and composition behind it.
