Master Gardener Class Programme

Want to learn more about Plant health through managing healthy soils?

This workshop, the third in the MasterGardener series, will look at the most important criteria to maintain healthy plants – SOIL.

The hands-on workshop will investigate the various types of soil, interrelationships between plant health, soil, nutrition, soil organic matter, soil water and importantly soil fauna.

What bugs and critters do we want to encourage and maintain in our soils?

The practical workshop will include using soil testing field equipment, identifying soil types, comparing soil chemistry – all in the challenge to manage healthy soil.
Take this opportunity to try out soil testing field equipment to which you may never have ready access.



Be led by Brisbane local senior consulting horticulturist
and internationally respected teacher
specialising in sub-tropical and tropical horticulture.
