About the event

This workshop is an introduction to soils with particular emphasis on how different soil properties influence the plants and crops they support. We will consider the components and factors that make soils different from one another, whether it is parent material/texture, structure, hydrology, climate, etc. The workshop will be held at Wimpole Home Farm and will start with an indoor session on basic soil science relevant to local soils, before having a farm walk to see how soils change over the estate and how organic cropping and wildlife conservation have been integrated into the Estate's management.
