Soil Health and Water Quality Workshop
Farmers, landowners and city dwellers can all learn something about how to incorporate conservation practices onto their land from a panel of experts. Learn about building soil health practices into farm leases, edge-of-field practices, prairie strips and how townspeople can play a role in conservation efforts. The event will also feature a hands-on soil health discussion.
