Goal: To determine biological soil health for diverse land managers in Thurston County as a measure of overall soil health in the county.  Biological testing will be done on soils for 16 identified properties, with diverse production, including beef, chicken, dairy, vegetables and hay. The results will be shared through outreach events and farm tours, with technical assistance for correcting low levels of biological activity.
