2nd Annual Soil Festival

The U. S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS) and Texas AgriLife Extension Service teamed up to co-host the 2nd Annual Soil Festival at USDA-ARS’s Grassland, Soil and Water Research Laboratory.   The Soil Festival was held on February 4th for fifth graders in the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program at all Temple ISD elementary schools.   Both federal and state researchers, their research teams, and other agency employees provided hands-on activities and demonstrations of soil-related topics important in agriculture and for environmental stewardship.   Students examined the physical, chemical, and biological aspects of soil as well as methods of soil management.
