Take Action: Fund the Maryland Healthy Soils Program

Mac_rggi_healthy_soils_-_2021

Take Action to fund the Maryland Healthy Soils Program (HB8)!

This important bill, sponsored by Del. Krimm, would allow Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) funds to be used for the currently-unfunded Maryland Healthy Soils Program, encouraging and supporting farmers in their journey to build soil health.

Benefits of healthy soils on Maryland’s farmland:

  • Increases farm resilience and profitability

  • Improves water quality and ecosystem biodiversity

  • Sequesters carbon to help mitigate the effects of climate change
