A major milestone for New York Soil Health in 2019 was bringing the many interested stakeholders together to produce a soil health roadmap for New York. The core of the Roadmap is a section that includes a vision statement, and key goals—outlining specific research, outreach, and policy priorities for pursuing those goals.
“It was impressive to see how such a diverse group of stakeholders was able to find consensus on a few key goals that address some of our most urgent environmental challenges while supporting the long term success of our farms,” said David Wolfe, NYSH co-PI.
