Washington SoilCon returns in February with a series of engaging events to advance soil health practices and knowledge. SoilCon, now in its fourth year, is a free resource for agricultural professionals to learn science-based soil health information. This year, SoilCon will be a network of soil health events happening across Washington State, plus a global online event. Anyone interested is encouraged to attend the Global Perspectives event to see what projects are happening worldwide and then find the most relevant regional event for them.
Participants will engage with regional soil health experts, both researchers and farmers. Each can choose between the convenience of online meeting and in-person engagement. The in-person events offer regionally-specific soil health insights and allow attendees a chance to connect with a community dedicated to improving soil health.
