Evening seminar with Nicole Masters
Have you ever wondered how your food choices impact the global food system? Are you curious about regenerative agriculture? Do you want to know what healthy, functioning soils look like?
Come to Rocklands Farm for an evening with internationally-acclaimed soil health expert Nicole Masters. Her dynamic presentation will explain how soil health affects our planet’s ecosystems, share global examples of the growing regenerative agriculture movement, and shed light on how to eat your way to a healthier planet.
Nicole’s presentation is loaded with fascinating demonstrations & audience participation, so come prepared to learn and engage! This lecture is designed for local food consumers, but it will be informative & engaging for farmers as well. Be sure to arrive at 5pm for an incredible rain-simulator demonstration conducted by NRCS, followed by Nicole’s presentation at 6pm.
Food and beverages, including Rocklands wine, will be available for purchase prior to and during the event. In addition, we will have an Info Fair that will include tables from local organizations and businesses that promote sustainable agriculture.
