WALDOBORO — Have you ever taken a soil test and thought, “What do all those numbers, graphs and Xs mean?” Or wondered how to calculate the correct amount of fertilizer needed to make your garden or specific crop thrive? If you’d like to know more about soil, please join us for this workshop.

The University of Maine Cooperative Extension is offering a soil fertility workshop April 3, 10 a.m. to noon at the UMaine Extension Knox-Lincoln office, 377 Manktown Road, Waldoboro.

Participants in this interactive workshop will learn how to read and utilize soil test results, and discover the differences in soil amendments including compost, lime, conventional and organic fertilizers and animal manures. Participants are encouraged to bring a copy of their most recent soil test results if available.

The cost is $10 per person. Register online https://extension.umaine.edu/knox-lincoln/soil-fertility-workshop/. For more information or to request a reasonable accommodation, contact Mark Hutchinson, (207) 832-0343; mhutch@maine.edu. More information is also online.
