Join the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to learn the basics of
improving soil health in urban environments.
Lara Johnson of the Virginia Department of Forestry will provide an overview on how to rehabilitate highly compacted soils. Lara will demonstrate how to test for compaction and how to amend the soil to bring back biological processes so it can support healthy tree growth.
The program will begin indoors before moving outside where you will have an opportunity to perform the demonstrated skills firsthand with guidance from our workshop experts.
All tools will be provided. This workshop is free, but registration is required. We have limited registration for this event to ensure that physical distance can be maintained. CBF requires volunteers to wear a CDC-approved mask while indoors.
This event is hosted in partnership with the Virginia Department of Forestry and Richmond Parks and Recreation Department.
