Soil Trek: 2013
Captain’s log: Soil date 9-30-13. Dr. Robin “Buz” Kloot visits more than a dozen leading soil health scientists in his epic Soil Trek journey #soiltrek.
Following on the tails of the popular “Soil Health Lessons in a Minute” video demonstrations, NRCS and Buz have teamed up to develop a series of short videos focusing on the science behind soil health. Buz, who is a film maker and Research Associate Professor at the Earth Sciences and Resources Institute, University of South Carolina, is posting video logs along the journey to introduce us to some of the experts he’s meeting along the way.
Follow the journey at http://dirtdiaries.com/vlog or on Twitter #soiltrek. You can join the “buzz” by helping us promote the journey.
