Photo of farm soilThanks to all the people who attended the June 14 Soil Conference in Chimacum. Great people excited about soil! Most of them are, or have been, farmers. Michael and Ashley put together a delicious lunch and eating and chatting lasted till 12:30. We brainstormed a list of topics to consider. Biochar got the most air time and most topics were only briefly discussed.  Some people had to leave early.

Reversing Degenerative Diseases thru Soil Regeneration

Dear friends of the soil (isn’t that all of us?)

On June 14, I hosted a small Soil Conference in Chimacum, Washington. We talked about how to regenerate soils and produce nutrient-dense food and how to sequester carbon in soils and farming systems. I had been studying in preparation for the conference and that led me to Dan Kittredge and the Bionutrient Food Association. Here is a report on my June 13 conversation with Dan Kittredge, founder and director of the Bionutrient Food Association. I expect there will be a lot more information on soil following my June 14 conference.
