Growing Soil – from North Dakota to California

Gabe Brown of Brown’s Ranch in North Dakota and Elizabeth and Paul Kaiser of Singing Frog Farm in California will discuss soil management techniques that benefit the health of your soil as well as your bottom line. Learn from these veteran no-tillers how your soil functions and how you can actually grow topsoil by following nature’s principles. The five tenets of a healthy ecosystem include: Minimize disturbance; Armor the soil surface; Diversity; Living roots in the soil as long as possible; and Animal integration. These universal principles of soil can be used on any size operation from small-scale intensive farms to thousands of acres, on any soil type, and in any climate.
