Regenerative Agriculture Workshop Series - Understanding and Working with Living Soils
- This 12-week workshop series will provide you with the knowledge and practical skills to adapt and transition towards regenerative practices conducive to soil life.
- Each week, you will cultivate a new understanding of how your land management practices impact your soil's production capacity.
- Throughout the series, we will support you in developing a platform to help you make better decisions on restoring and nurturing the living soil community using ecological-based principles.
- Workshop sessions will be held via video conference software on Tuesdays from 6:30 pm to 8 pm PST (UTC -8) for lecture/presentation followed by 30 minutes (until 8:30 pm) for Q and A. There will be a three-week break for the holidays.
Additional value available for 3 participants
We will be working with three participants during the course as examples of how to assess, diagnose and implement Regenerative Agriculture concepts and practices. These three participants will work with Jo and Javan to assess and use their site as an example during the course.
Interested participants will be contacted by Jo or Javan if they are eligible.
The participants who work with Jo and Javan will be provided with the following additional value:
- One soil and one compost biological analysis, including report interpretation and recommendation from the landscape you are currently managing. **
- Regenerative land-design Analysis and Simple Consultation.
** NOTE: At this point, soil and compost samples can only be accepted from within Canada.
