This will run over two consecutive Thursday mornings – June 25th and July 2nd. This course is available for the incredible price of just €25 when you sign up through NOTS.
This interactive online course focuses on the principles of soil health for horticulture systems, using problem-based learning. Learn what the soil health principles are from a renowned international expert. Learn how soil health principles are gleaned from, and how their application improves (and creates) soil crumb structure.
The soil health principles work – from large farms to market gardens. When implemented doggedly, they bring real results: better soil structure, healthier crops and more consistent yields. What’s more, the growers that have applied these principles the most rigorously have the more profitable operations today.
