SoilCon24: Finding Diverse Solutions for Diverse Soils

Flyer displaying SoilCon 2024 locations

In February 2024, SoilCon returns — with a different look — including a series of engaging events to advance soil health practices and knowledge. Over the past three years, SoilCon has been an incredible free resource for agricultural professionals to learn science-based soil health information, and this year promises to deliver even more valuable insights. SoilCon is becoming a network of soil health events happening across Washington State as well as a global online event. We encourage people to attend the Global Perspectives event to see what projects are happening worldwide and then find the most relevant regional event for them.
