The 2022 schedule is being finalized

What is for certain is that this year’s series is sure to be a great one.

From the feedback I received from my inaugural season in 2021 I have tweaked a few things to ensure the series benefits those who join in.

I have expanded the focus to include regenerative agriculture topics since they are so tightly linked to soil health, and I will aim to bring presentations that show the how and the why of soil health practices. I am always open to suggestions, so don’t hesitate to reach out by email.

The sessions are free. Registration is required to get the Zoom link and the recording following the presentation.

Here is what is confirmed so far…(drum roll please!)

What’s all the Buzz about Regenerative Agriculture

February 15, 2022. 6:00-7:00 p.m.

Are you curious about what steps you can take to improve soil health? Want to learn about regenerative agriculture? This one is for you!

We kick off the 2022 series with a presentation by Dr. Janel Ohletz about regenerative agriculture. This term is thrown around a lot these days and I would like to discuss some of the history of the term and how it differs from sustainable agriculture. The presentation will be about 35 minutes with plenty of time for healthy discussion and Q&A. Join us and learn how we can impact environmental health in our own backyard.
