Soil chromatography is a qualitative method used in biodynamic agriculture to assess soil, biofertilizers and crop quality/health. For this lab, you will create circular chromatograms and learn to analyze them with this method.

Ryan Herring will lead us in this fascinating and useful course of study. He has been teaching soils, composting, permaculture, regenerative agriculture and gardening to the local community in Spokane Washington since 2013, and has been an active member in the regional Inland Northwest Biodynamic Group since the fall of 2014. Ryan joined the Fellowship of Preparation Makers and the Evaluation Group that is part of the Fellowship and now conducts research through them using a tool called chromatography.

Please bring a sample of dried soil from your farm or garden for assessment.
