The soil health initiative of the Marion County SWCD in Indiana provides technical, financial and educational services to small farmers and gardeners in Indianapolis. The District will share its experiences in implementing the program and take a look at how cover crops, mulching, reduced tillage and accompanying conservation practices are being utilized in Indianapolis urban agriculture.
The Benton SWCD in Oregon works with the Willamette Valley Regenerative Landscape Coalition, a group of volunteer landscape professionals and scientists, to promote, advocate and provide guidance for landscaping practices that build soil health. Learn how the group’s presentations, workshop sessions and webpage inspire urbanites and local agency staff to adopt regenerative soil management. Recently, the group has launched a 5-part blog series and their C-Questers campaign to raise awareness of how gardens sequester carbon.
These popular webinars, held on the third Thursday of each month, are sponsored by The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation in partnership with the NACD Urban and Community Resource Policy Group. There is no cost to participate, but space is limited. Registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
