Soil

“It is impossible to have a healthy and sound society without a proper respect for the soil.”

                                                                     

Healthy and productive soil supports food systems, wildlife, and human survival. Conservation Districts have a history of promoting soil conservation primarily by limiting wind and water erosion. Beyond erosion, we know that implementing soil health principles and systems such as keeping it covered and limiting disturbance increases organic matter and improves microbial activity. Applying these principles to your soil helps sequester carbon, increase water infiltration, and improve wildlife and pollinator habitat. For working lands, this often leads to greater yields and profits. In our community, healthy soil supports aesthetic natural features, wildlife habitat, and recreational benefits.
