Field School for Soil Health Educators
August 9 - August 10
Join educators from across the Midwest to build skills for communicating soil health concepts. In the field, we’ll evaluate soil changes after using different tillage and cover crop planting equipment, and practice using a penetrometer under different field conditions. Presentations will cover manure management and cover crop nutrient uptake.
Participants will learn from professional communicators and share best practices on how to engage diverse audiences on soil management topics. Attendees will also have the opportunity to produce their own soil health focused video story! An optional half-day field trip will include travel to the karst region of southeast Minnesota to learn how communities and farmers are working to protect vulnerable drinking water aquifers from nitrate contamination.
