Soil Health + Conservation

We are excited to introduce City Sprouts' new Soil Health + Conservation initiatives! In 2022, City Sprouts introduced the Conservation Education Program Coordinator position to its staff to manage programming and outreach with the goal of advancing soil health and conservation practices among urban growers. These new initiatives are designed to support urban growers in accessing technical assistance, adopting conservation practices, and improving their soil health. We hope you'll join us at our upcoming soil health workshops, field days, events, and more. Subscribe to get the latest updates on these opportunities!

Soil Health Series Workshops

Beginning in 2023, we will be launching the Soil Health Series to offer advanced workshops geared towards experienced growers and beginning farmers under our new Soil Health + Conservation Initiatives. These workshops will support urban farmers interested in adopting conservation practices and building healthier soils and complement the introductory experiences offered through the Growing Gardeners series. The Soil Health Series is designed to provide growers with the soil science and management skills and resources to address common resource concerns in the urban environment.

Coming soon: Farm Number Registry Day

Whether you're a small gardener or a full-fledged urban farmer, a farm number can support your growing operations and provide access to federally-funded programs through the FSA and NRCS. On Thursday, October 12, 2023 City Sprouts will be hosting a Farm Registration Event to give urban growers an opportunity to learn more about what benefits a farm number can provide, what steps are necessary to register for a farm number, and even get the process started. Preregistration for this event is open and can be completed here.

Thank you for making our Urban + small-Scale Soil Health Field Day a Success!
