Soilutions in the Community

We Love Soils Art Contest

For making us laugh out loud at 8:00 in the morning, for liberal use of the poop emoji, for demonstration of great effort on the part of a teacher to share knowledge of the soil with her students, for great artistic skills demonstrated by all students, for giving us the joy of seeing children pay as much attention in their drawings to what is under the surface of the Earth as to what is above it, for demonstrating a broad appreciation for the many services that soil provides, and for excellent use of art for telling a story, thank you Mountain Mahogany for an outstanding submission of artwork (24 drawings in total!) showing us why they love soil!

Workshops and Classes

Sandoval SWCDThis Fall, 2015, Jim Brooks will join others in teaching how to apply permaculture methods to a 2-acre demonstration site to halt erosion and re-establish  native flora. Volunteers will be trained in permaculture methods, take part in work parties, and help monitor the site’s progress. This pilot project is partially funded by a grant from the NM Soil and Water Conservation Commission, and is a partnership with Coronado Soil and Water Conservation District and City of Albuquerque Open Space.
