This website, Purdue Soil Health, provides hands-on soil health educational activities for high school teachers, a photo and video library, and general information about Purdue soil health research and educational workshops. Goals:

  • Improved understanding of the importance of soil health
  • Improved understanding of how agriculture professionals, farmers, and gardeners can achieve soil health
  • To provide the tools that teachers (both formal and informal) can use to educate others about soil health.

Ultimately, we hope this collaborative work will lead to improved, soil-friendly farming and gardening practices thereby improving environmental quality, sustainability, and efficiency.
