Hi all

Have you always wondered how the rock that underlies your farm affects your soil etc?

Here is a simple primer on how to start understanding the geology of your farm - including links to see maps etc.

I hope this is helpful

Thanks Gary...that was a great little orientation for folks to think about...

Very germane for anyone growing things...and so often forgotten or not thought about.

Regards,

Thanks Jay

I sometimes wonder why the geology under peoples feet is so often ignored.....because it can affect so many things!

Thanks for the comment on the blog as well

Hi Gaz,

I am weird (probably like you......in the way of "rock." I carve it, lay it, climb over it (AMGA guide part time), and minored in geology and generally spend more time than most just thinking about and pondering "stone."

It just is such a wondrous thing....
