Participatory Science Platform
Healthy Living Soil Project is a collaborative initiative that will emphasise the benefits of incorporating a scientific approach to the way we grow our food.
The participants in the project - local small scale growers, community groups and Landbased Training horticulture students - will gain a better understanding of the characteristics of their soils and what they can do to grow healthy living soil to enable optimal food production using biological farming practices. Food and Food Science is a key focus for the economic development of the Taranaki region.
With the outcomes of the Healthy Living Soil Project we hope to encourage more growers and gardeners to incorporate science in their growing journey.
