About the Event
Soil contamination is a common challenge for growers in Omaha, but luckily there are many ways to farm or garden safely on contaminated land. This workshop will walk you through how to test your soil, options for installing safe growing beds or remediating soil contamination, and best practices for working in or on contaminated soils and handling produce grown in contaminated soils.
Registration fees for Growing Gardeners Workshops are suggested donations of $5/person for lecture-style classes, and $10/person for value-added classes (i.e., take-home goods). No one will be turned away for inability to pay the suggested donation.
Part of City Sprouts' mission is to provide educational opportunities to the community. Please be honest about what you can afford, so we may continue to provide equitable opportunities for all. Thank you!
