About the Presenter:
Dr. Christine Jones is an internationally-acclaimed agricultural consultant with a specific message regarding sequestration of carbon and humus development through appropriate agricultural practices.  According to Dr. Jones, photosynthesis operating at full capacity is the critical element in soil humification.  Among the many benefits of high-humus soils are an abundance of soil micro-organisms which manage and make available to the plants a broad range of minerals; more effective water management; and more vibrant plant health through improved plant immunity.  Dr. Jones' work focuses on how to maximize photosynthesis through biological processes.  Her message is appropriate for anyone who raises food, for those who focus on conserving our natural resources, and for climate activists.

Please note that both events include a potluck lunch.  Bring a dish to pass, a drink mug, and a table setting.
