The biology of soil microbes, and the practices that can be performed to enhance soil activity and quality of urban landscapes, will be described during a one- day workshop on Jan. 5 at the North Dakota State University Dickinson Research Extension Center.

The simple, biologically effective practices that can be used to increase soil microorganism biomass on residential properties were developed from the research on four decades of prairie ecosystem restoration.

"Homeowners previously have not been able to increase soil microorganisms and improve soil health on their residential landscapes," says Lee Manske, research professor at the center.

The workshop will be held in the Red Office Building on the corner of State Avenue and Empire Road in Dickinson.

The workshop will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mountain time. An open discussion on soil microbe management will be in conjunction with a pizza supper after 5 p.m.
