“Healthy Soils, Healthy Streams” Training, and Technical Assistance

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This project will conduct trainings on soil health and stream health for nearly 6,000 farmers, conservation professionals, and others. Pennsylvania No-Till Alliance will offer technical assistance on cover crops and no-till farming to to at least 24 farmers.. The potential for synergy between the Alliance and Stroud Water Research Center is promising. The same biological principles — nurturing the microbes and other organisms that do the real work — apply to achieving both healthy soils and healthy streams.
