Healthy Soils for Healthy Waters Update

Hypoxia Task Force Meeting: May 18-19, 2015, Columbus, OH HSHW Symposium: December 1-3, 2015, Memphis, TN Last September, with the considerable contributions of over 100 participants from throughout the Mississippi and Great Lakes watersheds, the Healthy Soils for Healthy Waters (HSHW) workshop set the stage for the development of a whole-systems approach to agricultural land management for soil health, crop productivity, and water quality benefits. The Hypoxia Task Force and SERA-46 meeting will occur May 18-19, 2015 in Columbus, OH and will include a nutrient workshop on the Healthy Soils for Healthy Waters Initiative. The agenda is located on the HSHW website. The HSHW symposium will occur December 1-3, 2015 in Memphis, TN. The Healthy Soils for Healthy Waters website contains case studies from the September Workshop and will continue to be updated with information on both the May and December meetings. We have assembled a Steering Committee to help us further develop the HSHW initiative; you can learn more here. Thank you again for your participation in a successful first workshop, and your continued commitment to practical solutions to impairments of our water resources. Sincerely, Dr. Andy Ward, John Andersen, and the HSHW...
