Demystifying Regenerative Grazing and Soil Health with Dr. Allen Williams
August 24, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
Register Now for this Two-Part Workshop!
The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) will host a two-part workshop in August for ag professionals, educators and mentor farmers to provide information and hands-on training on regenerative grazing, soil health, and monitoring. NCAT soil and livestock specialists will be joined by Dr. Allen Williams of Understanding Ag, LLC. to lead these workshops.
We will equip participants with the tools and information needed to confidently help producers or fellow farmers understand soil health and regenerative grazing management. Questions we will explore include:
• How is regenerative different from sustainable or organic?
• How can this terminology shape farmers’ decision-making processes?
• What indicators can farmers use to determine whether their management practices are building or damaging soil health?
• What can ag professionals and educators do to support farmers in their efforts to improve grazing management and build soil health?
We will explore these topics and more. Join us!
Participants are encouraged to attend both workshops, but attendance of both is not required. We welcome whatever level of participation is possible.
