Matinée and Evening presentation (ONE DATE ONLY):

Hey, soil is more than just “dirt”!  Soil is alive, a diverse ecosystem made up of organic matter, minerals, roots, worms, microbes, and much more!  Soil tells the story of the iconic landscapes of the Hawaiian Islands, layer by layer, from the surface down to the rock below.  It can also tell us the story of past use and management, and how that has affected the overall health of the soil. 

Amy Koch, Soil Scientist from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, tells us why it is important to protect soil as one of our natural resources, and highlights the vital importance (to all of us) of healthy soil.  Come learn how to tell if a soil is healthy and what you can do to enhance soil health (whether in a community garden, large or small farm, or your own backyard), twice on Monday, June 24 (afternoon and evening).  We promise you will never see “dirt” in quite the same way!
