California Healthy
Soils
Week

December 4th to December 7th, 2017

Healthy Soils = Healthy lives. In California, our soils help feed the world, save water, clean the air and fight climate change. In honor of these contributions, and in celebration of International World Soils Day, CDFA, alongside its state, federal and private sector partners, will be hosting California Healthy Soils Week. This week long celebration—which will include panels, webinars, and tours—will highlight all the remarkable gifts healthy soils have to offer. We hope that by telling the story of California soil we can help Californians better understand how vital it truly is. Listed below is a tentative schedule for the week.
