The Urban Soil Health Program is a statewide initiative run under the auspices of the IASWCD. USH provides financial and technical support to local USH Working Groups, SWCDs and conservation partners for educational events and assistance geared to urban, small-scale, diversified producers.


We educate and advocate to improve soil health on Indiana’s urban and diversified small-scale farms and gardens.


We envision a thriving, diversified local food system in Indiana where conservation practices are integrated on all farms, and local partnerships in every county uplift environmental stewardship and success of urban and small-scale farmers and gardeners.
