Wellington Soil Conservation Club

Are you interested in being a soil warrior? Do you want to know what’s going on under your feet? Come and join our new Loyal to the Soil 4H club and together we will learn:

  • Facts about soil and water conservation relating to agriculture in Wellington County.
  • Why soil is important? What is soil made of?
  • Types of soils and what we can do to make our soil better.
  • . . . and we are going to make new friends and have fun as we gather the ‘dirt’ on soil.

Join us at 7 pm on April 8, 2024 at the Mimosa Church (5980 Wellington Rd 26, Belwood) for our first meeting and get to know your fellow soil warriors.
