What exactly is Soil Health, you might ask?!
According to USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), “Soil health, also referred to as soil quality, is defined as the continued capacity of soil to function as a vital living ecosystem that sustains plants, animals, and humans. This definition speaks to the importance of managing soils so they are sustainable for future generations”
