Event Date : February 18, 2011
10.30am to 3pm
Mouldsworth, Near Chester.
Facilitated by OMSCO and Elizabeth Stockdale.
How can farmers enhance soil life? Will improved management of the soil ecosystem benefit farmers? A team of farmers, advisors and soil scientists are exploring these questions for Natural England under the leadership of Elizabeth Stockdale (Newcastle University).
Join us to:
The workshop will also include a hands-on session assessing different soil types, so please bring your own soil samples along if you would like to join in the demonstration.
Please bring along an intact spadeful of soil, if possible. Ideally dig a small hole and take a slice (25 cm deep 10 cm thick) with the spade. Slide this slice into a large plastic bag and seal it up.
Liz Stockdale will be sharing information as well as leading some interactive discussion sessions. Attendance and lunch is free but you must register. Contact Elizabeth Stockdale on firstname.lastname@example.org for an information pack and to book
