The selection of BC provincial soil was a democratic process.
We received 7 proposals of soil candidates in the fall of 2014, which included the Abbotsford soil series, Delta soil series, Deserters soil series, Eunice soil series, Neptune soil series, Osoyoos soil series, and Alpine Sombric Brunisols. Read the proposals for each soil type here.
We hosted an online vote from October 20th to November 3rd 2014. The voting was weighed: voters selected their top three soils, and the first choice received 5 points, second received 3 points, and third received 2 points
80 soil aficionados voted, and the winner was: the Alpine Sombric Brunisol!
