Imagine getting fresh potting soil for less than $5.00 per cubic yard! Would you like to know how? UF/IFAS Extension Hillsborough County will be having a two hour class demonstrating the recycling of used potting soil. We will be discussing the results and utility of solarizing used potting soil from the USDA Southern Sustainable Agricultural Research and Education On-Farm Grant. A model demonstration site will be available to look at so you will be able to treat your own soil. We will also be discussing the availability and use of the Hillsborough County Biosolids/Compost program that will be available for use for agricultural producers in Hillsborough County in the future. This may be a great alternative to buying peat/bark mixes. The cost is free and refreshments will be served. For more information please call Shawn 813-744-5519 Ext. 54147. Location: 5339 CR 579, Seffner, FL 33584. To register please either call Shawn or click this link. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cost-savings-potting-soils-class-tickets-17894926206
