Hello Master Naturalists!
If you would like to learn more about the blackland clay soil in Collin County, here is your opportunity. Our own Chapter Advisor Chase Brooke is one of the presenters! There is a $15 fee to attend this online workshop. Also, please note this workshop overlaps our BPTMN Chapter Meeting by 30 minutes.
Program: The Clays of Collin County – Managing Your Soil
Speakers: Chase Brooke & Brad Voss, Collin County Agriculture/Natural Resources & Horticulture Extension Agents
Description: This online workshop will present homeowners and landowners with an overview of our unique blackland clays that comprise the vast majority of soils in Collin County. Extension Agents Chase Brooke and Brad Voss will discuss the properties of our soils, what makes our soils challenging to work with, and how to manage those soils to improve garden, lawn, and forage production.
“This is a great opportunity for both new and established residents of the county to start off their spring garden planning,” said Voss about the program. Attendees will leave the workshop with a better understanding of how soil composition interacts with plant available nutrients, how amending clay soils is different than other soil textures, and how common pitfalls in clay soil management can be avoided in the upcoming planting season.
Date: Tuesday, February 9, 2021
Cost: The workshop will cost $15
