Description

The Northeast Healthy Soil Network Symposium: Preparing the Northeast Agricultural Sector for an Uncertain Future

Join the Northeast Network*, join the regional revolution! The United States is poised for a farming "revolution" of sorts, centered around building healthier soils throughout the country, to foster healthier land, environments and people in turn. This soil health movement is being led by farmers, foresters & land managers, members of government and non-governmental groups in diverse ways, and Northeast states are especially well positioned to manifest its goals to reward farmers for using healthy-soil-practices, producing ecosystem services and healthy food.

The Northeast Healthy Network hopes to strengthen and aid the healthy soil movement in the Northeast region, by fostering communication and collaboration amongst us all!

*On April 4th, 2019, the Tufts Global Development and Environment Institute gathered a group of more than 30 Northeast soil health actors and advocates to discuss the management of our region’s soils. As an outcome of this meeting, participants established the Northeast Healthy Soils Network (“the Network”), to work towards a common goal of promoting widespread healthy soil management practices and policies, and related co-benefits including soil carbon storage and regional climate change mitigation and adaptation, across Northeast forests and farmland
