The Western Colorado Soil Health Conference

February 26, 2022 7:30 am - 5:00 pm Montrose Pavilion (1800 E Pavilion Pl, Montrose, CO 81401)

It Begins with Soil Health!

Soil health is critical to the future of agricultural production on the Western Slope of Colorado.  With a contingent of farmers as well as community groups and government officials, the Western Slope has been able to take soil health education and implementation techniques and specifically adjust them for the local area.  As pressure on agricultural production increases, soil health practices can insure that agricultural needs are met with sustainable production, quality and economic viability.
