Upper Soil Pit

This is a picture was taken in the upper soil pit at the organic farm. James was showing us the different horizons that are within this pit. Although its hard to tell in this picture, this pit shows how the soil in this area was made from continual flooding events. These floods occurred over many years, and after each event, sediment was left on top of the area and this accounts for the different horizons.
