Join to learn about strategies to build the health of our agricultural soils by supporting the web of soil life that creates a “soil sponge”, capable of restoring the natural carbon and water cycles that determine our climate. By re-creating landscapes that soak up rain, retain nutrients and filter water, we can build community resilience in the face of extreme weather events. These practices can also contribute to profitability on farms.

 

Didi Pershouse is the author of The Ecology of Care: Medicine, Agriculture, Money and the Quiet Power of Human and Microbial Communities and is President of the Soil Carbon Coalition. She develops curriculum on soil health principles and whole systems landscape function and facilitates workshops.

 

Space is limited. Please register by April 5th
