The Virginia Soil Health Coalition facilitates communication and collaboration among partners across the commonwealth to support farmers, leverage resources, and advance strategies that increase soil health and the understanding of its many co-benefits.


Sustainable Chesapeake played a leadership role in helping to secure funding to support the Virginia Soil Health Coalition's work. Because of the success of these fundraising efforts, we are able to facilitate the collaboration, provide support for farmer mentors, and fund the implementation of soil health practices throughout the commonwealth
