Roger Kozak Community Room
Join Dean Spader in the Kozak Community Room for a fascinating look at the intricate world of soil!
Numerous scientific disciplines using electron microscopy are discovering why “many modern agricultural and urban landscapes mean dead dirt.” What is killing our soil? Why is dead soil so compacted with hardpan, and why does it erode so easily? Why are certain weeds and pests taking over? If we want to reverse these trends, how do we restore life to our dead soil? The same science is beginning to provide answers to these questions. This presentation offers two forms of soil management and suggests that one is better for our lawn, garden and farm soils.
