Quest Reflections


How has this Quest changed you?

You’ve completed a project that has helped restore the health of soil in your community. By restoring soil health you are also helping slow climate change. As a Soil Hero, you now have a deeper understanding of the importance of healthy soil for our food, natural ecosystems, and changing climate. 

A critical next step is to reflect back on the Quest to spotlight lessons learned, highlights, and challenges. Think back to the beginning and your first experience observing soil. How has this Quest changed your understanding, skills and confidence related to soil, climate change, and designing solutions to problems? 

You can choose any or all of the Reflection Ideas below, or you can create your own.
