Understanding soil is a basic skill needed by anyone interested in agriculture, environmental science, gardening, natural resource management, and water quality. Traditionally, to gain that skill, a person has had to pay college tuition and spend long hours in a classroom. Now, with the power of the internet at your fingertips, the NC Cooperative Extension Service is bringing a first class Introduction to Soil education to your office, dining room table, or local coffee shop.
