Teresa at a community event.

With a passion for decomposition, Teresa has practiced composting at home and shared methods with her community for about a quarter century. Collaboration with local and state-wide partners provides many opportunities for Teresa to explore soil health. Teresa’s Soil Quality Project encourages farmers to make management decisions that improve soil function, reduce production inputs and protect the environment. She participates at many community events from Forest Camp to OSU’s Non-profit Career Fair. "In 2001, I uprooted my family and moved to Corvallis to pursue a Master’s in Soil Science at OSU. Food waste composting research married with scholarly escapades into soil physics, chemistry and biology prepared me to be a member of the Benton SWCD Team. My passion is to revive regard for soil."
