Webinar: Aligning Soil and Human Health

04/09/19, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Participants will join to learn how the four “C”s that connect soil and human health--Climate, Critters, Cuisine and Community--and identify farm-level practices that promote health for humans and the environment.

Soil management practices can positively or negatively impact human health. In this webinar, we will discuss the four interconnected pathways that link practices in the field to our own health and explore the existing evidence and information gaps. We will review soil management practices that can significantly protect or improve human health and address obstacles and opportunities for implementing these changes. Resources to learn more about “health-centered” agriculture will also be offered.

This webinar is presented by the USDA NRCS Soil Health Division. Contact Candy Thomas, Regional Soil Health Specialist, Soil Health Division for more information about this webinar.
