The eighth annual Soil Health Conference will be held Feb. 22 and 23 at the Delta Center for Performing Arts, located at 822 Grand Avenue in Delta. This conference is the premier area educational and networking event designed to educate producers, orchardists, ranchers, government officials and the broad community about ways to increase organic matter and increase the health of our soils by using cover crop, green manure, grazing, composting, entomology and other sustainable practices.
Understanding that soil is a treasure, Delta County Economic Development, in conjunction with NRCS, Delta Conservation District, Shavano Conservation District as well as individuals active in the agricultural community have come together to prepare the annual Western Slope Soil Health Conference.
