Soil Secrets: The Fundamentals for Building Profit, Productivity & Natural Capital
A 1 day Workshop & Field Walk with Dr Christine Jones
Research & farming case studies have demonstrated that flourishing communities of beneficial soil microbes are ‘key’ to soil health & plant production. Also revealed is that having the right microbes present in the soil & in the right amounts, is dependent on having a diversity of green plants growing in the soil all year round.
How can it be done? How can we i) increase the water holding capacity of our soils ii) achieve flourishing communities of beneficial soil microbes iii) maintain year round species rich pastures, & iv) transition from a solely winter/spring annual pasture system to a more perennial system?
Find answers to these questions and more at our 1 day workshop & field walk ‘Soil Secrets – The Fundamentals for Building Profit, Productivity & Natural Capital’ with Australian soil ecologist Dr Christine Jones. Dr Jones will explain the truly amazing connections between plants, microbes & the soil, & how a positive feedback loop between them all can work to restore our farmland soils along with farm profits & productivity.
