Soil Health Gaining Ground in State Legislatures
Soil health legislation continues to gain momentum in several state legislatures. Join us for a discussion and update on state soil health initiatives in play in legislatures across the country - from the southwest to northeast and states in between.

We will hear from network leaders working on healthy soil policy and grassroots movement-building to support these policy efforts. In addition, they will share the lessons they have learned, as well as why the state-level implementation process is important. Participants will also be provided information regarding resources to follow to stay up-to-date on soil health state legislation.

Bryan Crawford Garrett, policy officer, Food and Agriculture Program, Thornburg Foundation, will moderate this webinar.

This webinar is sponsored by Thornburg Foundation and SAFSF
