The North Texas Municipal Water District partnered with the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board (TSSWCB), Association of Texas Soil and Water Conservation Districts, Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association, and Texas Wildlife Association along with over twenty other organizations across the state in a campaign to highlight the importance of voluntary land stewardship in Texas. Soil and Water Stewardship Week was April 24 through May 1, 2022, and the focus this year was “Healthy Soil, Healthy Life.”
To increase awareness about soils and water, NTMWD held a free regional class on April 29 to support Soil and Water Stewardship Week. A horticultural expert spoke about soil characteristics, the best plants for North Texas soils and how to improve soil health for successful plantings. Everyone who attended in-person received a free bag of compost or mulch to help conserve water in his or her landscape.
