MAINE, Southern Aroostook SWCD – The farmers and gardeners involved in the Southern Aroostook Soil and Water Conservation District’s unusual soil health experiment have unearthed their test subjects: the remains of cotton underwear they buried earlier this summer.

About a dozen farmers and gardeners around Aroostook County participated in the project, burying underwear to see how much of it was left over after two months of soil life.

“The idea is that the more alive your soil, the more the undies will decompose,” said Angela Wotton, district manager at Southern Aroostook Soil and Water Conservation District. “It’s sort of a fun experiment. It’s a good visual for soil health.”
