Soil Health Matters

Made possible through a Systems Change Develop Grant funded by the Vancouver Foundation.  This is a pilot project geared to connect 5 local cross-commodity farmers from the Rose Prairie area with each other and with deeply experienced Peace Region soil agrologists to explore historical and current soil health factors.  The program goals are to develop relationships between researchers and farmers as well as farmers across commodities in their local area to support them as they consider innovation in their operations and the factors that support or prevent shifts in land management decisions that foster soil health development.  Based on the results of this pilot project, additional funding will be sought to provide these connections for farmers in a community near you.
