Soil Health Workshop
Regional training draws over 50 farmers and agricultural professionals

Partnering with the Natural Resources Conservation Service Butler Office, ACCD hosted the third annual Western PA Regional Soil Health Workshop on March 7th at The Atrium in Prospect, PA. Over 50 farmers and agriculture professionals attended the workshop where speakers John Tooker (Penn State University), Steve Groff (Cover Crop Coaching, LLC), and Jim Hoorman (NRCS) discussed soil health principles. Topics included nutrient recycling, slug management, and cover cropping.


Why is Soil Health important?
Soil Health is the driving force behind productive crops and clean water. It helps to ensure plentiful crops and grazing materials for local farms. In turn, this prevents contamination of local waterways from nutrients and sediment by preventing erosion and runoff.
