What does the Paulding Soil & Water Conservation District do?
Every County in Ohio has a Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), which is a political subdivision of the State. In response to conservation concerns raised as a result of the 1930's dustbowl, SWCD's were formed in the late 1940's to complement a federal government agency (now titled the Natural Resources Conservation Service). Both local and federal agencies worked together to encourage farmers and landowners to employ practices on the land for the conservation of soil and water resources. Today SWCDs share the common goal of conservation of natural resources on urban and rural lands.

NEWS & UPCOMING EVENTS AT PAULDING SWCD:
Soil Your Undies!
So, you are likely wondering why we would bury underwear in the soil. Fear not, there is quite an experiment we have going on! We decided to replicate an experiemnt done by our counterparts at Wood Soil & Water Conservation District. Soil microbial activity is a key soil health indicator, says Sara Berg, SDSU Extension agronomy field specialist. "Most seasoned soil health producers recognize the value of the soil microbial kingdom and often refer to it as ‘the herd,’” Berg says. Bly explained that soil microorganisms increase plant residue decomposition, which releases plant nutrients. How can you test soil health & microbial activity? Bury some undies of course!
