Instructor - Rob Moutoux

Soil fertility is a complex subject involving three main aspects- physical, chemical, and biological.  In this workshop, we'll cover those aspects and their interactions.  Primarily, we'll learn the importance of soil testing, how to read soil tests, and what to do to properly balance your soil.  Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Sulfur, Phosphorous, and trace elements all need to be there in the right ratios, and biology needs to be working to cycle the nutrients to plant availability.  Following this program will lead to high quality, healthy plants that produce nutrient-dense, health-promoting foods in your gardens!

Rob Moutoux is the owner of Moutoux Orchards in Loudoun County.  Moutoux Orchards is committed to low-impact, environmentally friendly, sustainable agriculture and uses organic and biological methods to ensure that their trees reach their full genetic potential.
