Soil Health

Soil Health is the continued capacity of soil to function as a vital living ecosytem that sustains plants, animals, and humans. Good soil health is a cornerstone of economic and environmental sustainability of a farming operation. In 2014, the Sussex Conservation District spearheaded an effort to create the Delaware Soil Health Partnership, which provides workshops and field days throughout the year to help farmers develop farm-specific strategies to improve soil health.
