Who’s ready to get your hands dirty? Join local agronomists and soil health experts as we explore the conditions necessary to grow a cash crop–sugar beets! Youth will learn to conduct slake tests, measure soil compaction, identify soils by texture, and run simulations on rainfall and wind erosion. This 3-day workshop spread over 3-Mondays in January will offer hands-on learning for youth who are interested in learning about real-world crops and crop production.
Open to all youth in grades K-13 (2022-2023 school year).
$15 per youth for the 3 sessions.
