Ever wondered what’s living in a handful our dirt? Come to our meeting next Tuesday and hear from experts about how complex and interesting interesting soil can be! We are so fortunate to have speakers who presented at the Nevada Small Farm Conference and from the National Resouces and Conservation Service (NRCS), come to Washoe Valley this month to share some of the big and small picture information about how very important our soil is. Even if you, personally do not grow things, it is important for your children and grandchildren’s future. Soil for food production, medicine, and wood products is diminishing world-wide. And soil that is being cultivated, much of it, is being exhausted due to overuse or damage from chemicals at an alarming rate. The care and feeding of our soil is critical to protecting food supplies everywhere. You may think soil is not the most exciting topic, but I can assure you, these speakers will convince you otherwise.
