Got Soil?

watershed mapOn March 6th One Island hosted a deeply informative workshop with Bob Shaffer on soil – what is it, what creates it? how do we help keep it healthy and thriving? and who lives in it doing all the amazing work below the surface to help grow healthy plants  and FOOD?

We also had an overivew of our watersheds and ahapua’a with Mary Robblee of the Kona Soil and Water Conservation District who shared the history of that organization as it was formed in response to the Dustbowl and the services it currently provides.
