Soil Properties

Great day yesterday with Taj discussing soil.  If we did not have soil, we would not be here!

Organic soil is best!

Here are charts to help with how to determine your soil type.

Jars below are samples of soils from the Chook and Duck areas.

Thanks Taj for a great lecture / discussion / role play.
