Learn cutting edge techniques to support healthy microbial life in your cropland, rangeland or garden, and contribute to restoring and protecting our biosphere. A follow-up to the May 3 presentation at the SHED in Healdsburg by Dr. David C. Johnson, a molecular biologist whose innovative research focuses on soil microbes as the primary drivers of soil regeneration and carbon sequestration.
Some of the most hopeful news on the climate front is coming from scientists, farmers and ranchers who are developing new methods to regenerate the soil, revealing how agricultural productivity and environmental health can go hand-in-hand to confront our world’s greatest threat: climate change and humanity’s growing carbon footprint. One practice now in the spotlight is the innovative use of compost and its capacity to draw CO2 out of the atmosphere and put it back in the soil all while also bolstering soil health, diverting waste and reducing the need for synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.
