“In part one of our series on “Healthy Soil – Healthy Planet” we’ll be exploring some of the many benefits that regenerating our soils can have on the rest of the planet and on us humans! 🌱 Learn about our spring offer: 👉https://promo.soilfoodweb.com/springb…
The way we interact with the living skin of the earth is fundamental to the health of our world and everything that lives here. Modern farming techniques, deforestation and the use of chemicals have degraded soils all over the world to the extent that the survival of our own species and that of many others is now under threat. Fortunately, farmers and scientists have been exploring alternative methods over the last 4 decades and today, the Regenerative Movement offers solutions to many of the biggest problems facing humanity, such as ecosystem collapse, soil erosion, pollution and climate change. We now have proven methods that can deliver measurable results, reversing the damage done by previous generations, while offering farmers a viable alternative.
Panelists: Dan Kittredge, Dr. Stephan Van Vliet, Didi Pershouse, Dr. Elaine Ingham Host: Dr. Adam Cobb
The Soil Food Web School’s mission is to empower individuals and organizations to regenerate the soils in their communities. The Soil Food Web Approach can dramatically accelerate soil regeneration projects by focusing on the soil biome. This can boost the productivity of farms, provide super-nutritious foods, protect and purify waterways, and reduce the effects of Climate Change. No background in farming or biology is required for our Foundation Courses. Classes are online & self-paced, and students are supported by highly-trained Soil Food Web School mentors.
Over the last four decades, Dr. Elaine Ingham has advanced our knowledge of the Soil Food Web. An internationally-recognized leader in soil microbiology, Dr. Ingham has collaborated with other scientists and with farmers around the world to further our understanding of how soil organisms work together and with plants. Dr. Ingham is an author of the USDA’s Soil Biology Primer and a founder of the Soil Food Web School.
