Minor Morgan has been assisting the NM NRCS for many years on various soil health outreach educational and technical efforts, including teaching about soil health practices, site-visits to his operation to explain what, how and why he uses a SHMS to achieve soil health building. Minor continues to be an important advocate for soil health and is using his site to teach and demonstrate how all the components of a SHMS fit into an operation that builds healthy and productive soils, that are economically viable, sustainable and that achieve many other environmental benefits (e.g., wildlife habitat, pollinators, water conservation, etc.).
The USDA-NRCS Soil Health Division is grateful for Minor’s participation as an advocate and partner for small-scale vegetable production and his willingness to share his vast knowledge with many producers and NRCS employees and many other conservation partners.
