Environmental Services offers free classes on soil sampling, composting
Learn how to take a soil sample to submit for analysis at noon May 31 at Wessman Arena. A discounted price for lab sampling is available to those attending this demonstration.
You will learn how to read a soil sample test, and how to improve your garden or yard soil.
Jane Anklam, horticulturalist with the University of Wisconsin-Extension, shares tips on improving your soil.
You then have a week to submit a sample to UW-Extension in the Douglas County Courthouse, 1313 Belknap St., Room 107. The reduced lab test fee is $12.
Then at 1 p.m., learn the basics about compost, what you can compost and troubleshooting during an hour-long session.
From 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., people can pick up preordered rain barrels and composters. A limited number of extras will be for sale.
There will also be a display setup on Vermi-composting — using worms to breakdown food waste.
Registration is not required.
