New York Soil Health for Healthy Food, Profitable Farms, and Protection of Natural Resources
Interest in soil health practices such as reducing tillage, planting winter cover crops, and using compost amendments has expanded greatly in recent years, yet constraints to adoption persist. Our project facilitates collaboration among the many on-going efforts across the state to implement research, outreach, and policy solutions to address these constraints.
“Stories from the Soil” is an educational series produced by Cool Planet and the Future of Agriculture.
In this episode you meet Nave Strauss who is the director of street trees planting with the New York City Parks and Recreation department. Learn from Nave about their efforts to improve soil health in an urban environment.
