Soils at Guelph
To mark World Soil Day in 2018, a $500,000 donation was made to the University of Guelph to combat declining soil health in Ontario. Under the direction of the SES Profs. Kari Dunfield, Laura Van Eerd, and Claudia Wagner-Riddle, a new outreach initiative was formed with the name Soils at Guelph. Soils at Guelph is an effort to increase awareness of research initiatives, facilitate collaboration and knowledge exchange among stakeholders, and to educate on the importance of soil health.
The mission of Soils at Guelph is to advance sustainable soil management in Ontario by bridging gaps between farmers, researchers, industry, government, and the general public.
