Soil to Seed is designed to cultivate high school aged-youth in understanding the principles of erosion and sediment control. The curriculum begins with the fundamental mechanics behind erosion and sedimentation, then teaches students how to assess physical spaces for evidence of these processes, and eventually builds their knowledge base of how to manage and control soil loss and deposition.
