Regenerative Agriculture ~ Building resilience to a changing climate ~
February 17, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm
This workshop will focus on the science and proven best practices in regenerative agriculture to build soil health, particularly soil organic matter and how this can both adapt and mitigate climate change. Most importantly, these methods will improve yields in an increasingly unreliable and erratic climate while reducing production costs – making farms more viable.

International Director, Regeneration International
Sunday 17th February 2019
