A new gardening series, Amazing Soil, began in the March 9-10 edition of The Missourian. The weekly Newspaper In Education features teach young readers about soil, raised bed gardening, germinating seeds, composting, insects, organic gardening, and conservation. Each feature provides information for readers of all ages and activities for smaller green thumbs.
Newspapers across the state will be publishing the features created by the Missouri Press Association, but only The Missourian can say the features were home-grown. Matt Herring, Agronomy Natural Resource Specialist at the Franklin County MU Extension Center, provided the content used in the series.
