Soil Your Underwear: Tests for Soil Biodiversity and Soil Health

May 27, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A shovel and underwear being used to assess soil biodiversityDid you know cotton underwear can be used to assess soil biological activity? This idea, developed by Amazing Grazing, has spread around the world as it sparks people’s interest and makes them pay attention to what is going on in their soil.

The Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) and Amazing Grazing will be hosting a virtual event on Thursday, May 27th about soil health, how to assess soil health, and why it matters. A panel of soil experts will discuss “indicators” and tests you can perform in your own backyard to determine the health and biodiversity of your soil.

We will be taking a look at soil tests including the foam test, slake test, runoff demo, dung beetle buckets, etc.

We will be joined by soil experts Alan Franzluebbers, Johnny Rogers, Matthew Poore, Paige Smart and Sharon Freeman for this one hour webinar.
