Learn more about soil.

Get your hands dirty during this program about soil. Dirt is what you find under your fingernails. Soil is what grows your food. Soil is a complex and dynamic natural resource. It supports plant growth, effects water and air quality, and helps clean up wastes. It also provides physical support, water, air, and nutrients for plants. Explore how soil is made, methods to conserve it and the chemistry and composition behind it. Bring your garden gloves and wear shoes that can get muddy.

Please call 217-384-4062 by September 3 to let us know that you are coming.
