This week’s inbox was ripe with stories about soil health and water quality. Is it just me or does there seem to be more articles about these topics in the forefront of the news over the last few months? Maybe working with Iowa Learning Farms causes me to be more hip to them.
The soil stories are from other states but can be applied to Iowa:
Bringing degraded soil back to life, Highlands Today (an edition of the Tampa Tribune, Fla.)
And two opinion articles on water quality from Iowans:
Changing how I look at water, by Todd Dorman with the Cedar Rapids Gazette
Iowa should invest in water quality, by Tony Thompson, Elkhart, and Jennifer Terry with the Iowa Environmental Council
