Montana Healthy Soils Policy

In 2020, Grow Montana, a coalition of more than twenty food and agriculture organizations has undertaken drafting a soil health study bill. The long-term goal of the work is to establish a soil health program in Montana. With funding, healthy soils legislation would become a policy priority in this state.
