Soil Health across Diversified Farms in Yolo County, CA

I am passionate about working on issues of climate justice and climate change, focusing on synergies between the natural and built environment–specifically land remediation. Having previously created maps of farms located in Yolo County, this summer I will continue my apprenticeship by sampling and processing farmers’ soil in order to learn about soil health and farmers’ practices.

I now know so much more about the process of a research project, from proposal to planning, to execution, and I am very excited and grateful to continue the work over the summer. Thank you.
