FREE SOIL TESTING For Columbia Residents Columbia Association (CA) encourages and promotes sustainability. As part of CA’s efforts, the Community Development/Sustainability Service Bureau spearheads several initiatives to protect and restore Columbia’s waters. CA has partnered with the Columbia villages, Maryland Association of Soil Conservation Districts, Howard Soil Conservation District and Keith Campbell Foundation to conduct soil testing for Columbia residents. Soil testing will analyze the nutrients in your soil and determine the type and amount of fertilizer needed. By not applying unneeded fertilizer, you will save money and help protect Columbia’s streams, ponds and lakes.
