Soil health is a huge part of climate-friendly agriculture. Healthy, regenerative soils have the capacity to capture carbon, increase water retention, and eliminate the need for chemical inputs, all beneficial for the future of our climate. Building regenerative soil can improve yields, produce good quality crops and reduce input costs, all results that are beneficial to farmers. This field day discusses the biology of healthy soils and, techniques to transition your soil into one that is mutually beneficial for both our climate and crop production on your farm.
This event takes place at Cropthorne Farm, a certified organic vegetable farm dedicated to maintaining healthy and regenerative soils. The field day is 3 hours long and includes a number of guest speakers, a tour of the farm, and discussion on healthy soils with other farmers.
