Features

This is Justin Bisinger and Mark Schutt
Tuesday, June 18, 2019 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

The June 2019 forum will feature Justin Bisinger and Mark Schutt from the NRCS.

Justin and Mark will be breaking down soil health into understandable individual components. While soil health is a broad topic, it can be understood by beginning at the soil particle level then working up towards a healthy soil ecosystem.

They will finish the presentation by looking at how a healthy soil benefits both urban and agricultural landscapes to reduce water runoff and nutrient loss.

There will be 2 chances to attend this forum. Please RSVP to Cassie at [email protected] or 563-...
