Join the Indiana Native Plant Society Central Chapter via Zoom Wednesday, April 14, 7 PM EST to discuss regenerative agriculture with Hans Schmitz.
Regenerative agriculture is a relatively new term to describe a suite of management practices that aim to improve the soil and water quality of a farm. In many ways, regenerative agriculture is a net mitigator of climate change while introducing species diversity to a farm, including the opportunity for native plantings. Hans Schmitz, Purdue Extension Educator in Posey County, will describe the interconnections of climate change, regenerative agriculture, and potential for inclusion of native plants. Regenerative Ag speaks mostly to the soil, but can also be expanded to include principles in habitat regeneration and ecosystem regeneration. Natives certainly play a large role in that respect. Add climate change to the mix, and protection of natives becomes all the more important.
The Zoom link for the presentation will be sent to participants the day before, Tuesday, April 13.
