The 2019 Soil Health Summit kicked off Tuesday in St. Louis with a record number of attendees. This is the 5th Summit and the program has grown tremendously in a very short time.
Soil Health Partnership Executive Director Shefali Mehta says this year’s program is the most diverse in terms of presentations and breakout sessions and the attendees, partners and speakers are also more diverse than in previous years. This is the first year that the event has been opened up to all interested parties, where it has previously been limited to partners in the program.
The number of farmer partners in the Soil Health Partnership program has grown from 16 to well over a hundred. This surprising growth has fueled a need for more organizational resources and interest from companies like McDonalds.
