Little Assynt Tree Nursery played host to a soil fertility course last month, organised with Assynt Learning. Rural Skills Tutor Peter Holmes introduced the 9 participants to the delights of soil. Everyone had the chance to get hands on with soil texturing and measuring pH of their own soil samples. They also learned the importance of soil structure and how to improve and maintain nutrients levels to help increase yields of fruit and vegetables. The course was funded by the Caplich Community Benefit Fund.
