Led by NRCS, our project brings together a coaltion dedicated to improving the economic and environmental sustainability of Virginia agriculture. A core belief uniting us is that the long-term health of our rural economies and water quality will ultimately depend on how well we take care of our soil. We are also convinced that focusing on rebuilding Virginia soils offers a tremendous win-win opportunity for agriculture and the environment. Not only can we improve soil health in Virginia without cutting agricultural production, it is possible to do so while fundamentally boosting profitability on hundreds of thousands of acres of Virginia farmland. See the list of partners in our rapidly growing coalition below. Please join us in Gaining Ground!
