Soil Testing at the Berkshire Mall Farmer's Market (Saturday 9/30)

Gail Bolduc  | Published on Tuesday, September 05, 2017
We'll be offering soil testing at the Westfield Farmers Market (on Court Street) on Thursday, September 21st from 12:30PM to 5:30PM

We'll test your soil for pH (the range of acidity of your soil.). Acidity controls the availability of nutrients and beneficial organisms in the soil. Soil testing provides insight about your soil's ability to support plant growth.
