The West Virginia Soil Trailer Information and Rental Agreement - 10/4/16
posted by: Aimee Figgatt

The West Virginia Soil Trailer serves as a soil, water and agriculture specialty crops mobile learning center. Stationed at the Capitol Conservation District in Kanawha County, the WV Soil Trailer is available to service all of West Virginia.

The 100% ADA compliant unit has sculpted interior walls that depict a true underground world. The trailer showcases soil dwelling creatures, microorganisms, aquatic life and the roots that keep our grasses and trees fed as well as our food growing!

Soil is not just dirt, and water is not to be taken for granted. Both soil and water are alive and so important to our everyday life.

The Soil Trailer is available to rent through the Capitol Conservation District. Please contact Aimee Figgatt, District Manager at 304.759.0736 or email at ccd@wvca.us for more information.

  • Practices must not be initiated until board approval.
  • ALL practices MUST be completed and receipts turned into CCD District Manager by June 1, 2017 for reimbursement. There are no extensions on this date.
  • Please call the Capitol Conservation District office at 304.759.0736 with any questions.
