We’re looking forward to seeing you there!

On Sunday evening we lost a part of our SD Soil Health Coalition family — Al Miron, a friend and one of our founding directors.

Al generously gave his time and talents to assist others in every aspect of his life, including sharing his love of improving the health of the soil, the substance for all living things.

He was the true meaning of a gentleman and a scholar. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.

SD Soil Health Coalition will be honoring Al’s mission of improving soil health by providing the opportunity to contribute to the Al and Joan Miron Scholarship fund at SDSU. Al had arranged this scholarship years ago. Anyone wishing to contribute to the scholarship fund on behalf of Al’s soil health efforts can join us.  Contributions can be made payable to SDSU Foundation for Al and Joan Miron Scholarship.

Joan will be provided a list of contributors names.

You can send your contribution directly to SDSU or to SD Soil Health Coalition at the addresses below:

Cherish your family and friends!
