In honor of World Soil Day, join our conversation on the importance of soils to mitigate climate change with a leading soil scientist and recognized regenerative agriculture consultant.
Dr. Marie-Élise Samson, Associate Professor in the Department of Soils and Agri-Food Engineering at Laval University, will discuss the importance of soil health in the context of climate change adaptation and mitigation. More specifically, she will discuss the potential and challenges related to carbon sequestration in Canadian agricultural soils.
Blain Hjertaas, a renowned farmer and consultant in regenerative agriculture and holistic management, will share with us the concrete results of integrating regenerative practices on his farm, such as carbon capture, increased organic matter and soil temperature regulation. He will present his observations of the regeneration cycle of grasslands and the place of ruminants as essential elements of this ecosystem.
