What lies beneath our feet? It’s much more than just dirt!
Join Greenbelt and OSU’s Dr. James Cassidy for a presentation on the underground world from its creatures, to its soil and beyond. How does this sub-surface environment influence water, plants, animals, and people above ground? Free and family-friendly.
James Cassidy has been an Instructor of Soil Science at Oregon State University for over 12 years. The introductory class now has over 200 students each term and is very popular. James is also the faculty advisor for the wildly popular OSU Organic Growers Club – OSU’s student farm.
Coming from a non-traditional background (music industry for over 30 years) he is passionate about soil and is popular with students because of his dynamic speaking style. The student farm project has over 300 student volunteers on its list-serve and it continues to grow. The farm cultivates over 50 different fruit and vegetable crops and is just beginning its 18th season.
