Ready - Set - Grow: Garden Soil
Do yoIs it a loam or primarily sand, silt, or clay? The James Kennedy Public Library and the Dubuque County Extension Office have teamed up to bring you an educational soil texture kit to help you identify the type of soil you have in your garden or backyard. This virtual event, which is presented by Ray Kruse, Master Gardener Coordinator and Food Systems Program Coordinator for the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, Dubuque County, will be posted on the JKPL Facebook page. The JKPL will provide kits with all of the materials you need to do the activity. All you will need to provide is a timer and a calculator. Kits will be available to pick up as part of curbside service or by appointment starting on July 13. Kits will be available while supplies last.
