Join us for an engaging evening (and good beer and kombucha) with Dr. Kris Nichols. The way we farm, and the kind of farming our food choices support, has great potential to enhance human health and mitigate climate change. Soil health is the foundation for all agricultural systems, while management practices are the tools that help us increase the health of our soils.
Regenerative agricultural system approaches focus on soil biology and utilize integrated, dynamic principles to address fertility, pest, and disease issues. These regenerative systems have the potential to leverage increased soil organic matter to feed soil biology. This presentation will discuss crop diversity—including perennials, annuals, and cover and companion crops—reduced soil disturbance, and managed grazing, to increase profitability by maximizing nutrient and water use efficiencies.
