Capitol Hill's Alluvial Soil


Well, if you ever wanted to get all the dirt on soil, I hope you were at this meeting! Maxine Levine, a Soil Scientist from the USDA/NRCS/SSD, brought Capitol Hill's alluvial soil to life, telling us it's history, contents, living creatures, and what amendments it may need for successful gardening.


It was very informative, with lots of pictures, charts and graphs. Her complete presentation deck is available below where you can view it, download it, and learn from it.  It's a big file, make sure you have a good connection.


Many thanks to Sandra Bruce for planning and organizing this presentation.
