    Thought this might be of interest to folks on here (from the invite)--wasn't sure if it belonged here or in Events so posting in both:

    With the state of the world today, it is ever more important to know what's in your soil. In this class you will have an actual chance to analyze what's in your soil with one of the leading soil scientists in the area, Dr. Bala Chaudary, of DePaul University.

    The composition of your soil can affect your plants, your vegetables and your health.
    Come learn about the complex physical, chemical, and biological interactions that take place underground, all around us. Bring a cup of soil from your garden and together we will test its chemical properties. You will analyze several physical and chemical properties of your soil in class and will walk away with results and Dr. Chaudary's interpretation of your results. You will also come away with experience in how to do future tests on your own. $50 (includes all supplies).

    Instructor: Dr. Bala Chaudhary, Assistant Professor at DePaul University and Soil Ecology expert.

    Need-based scholarships are available. Contact matt@thetalkingfarm.org for more information.
