The Glen Road Organics is hosting a one-day conference on a critical ecological topic: Healthy Soil. Healthy soil impacts multiple ecosystem functions: from the soil microbiome, to air and water quality, soil nutrient cycling, soil carbon sequestering, pollinator diversity and populations, and plant growth. Urban and Rural growing systems are dependent on resilient soils.
You need to be here.
We are inviting you to join us, at the height of our Canadian summer, in challenging presentations and discussion on innovative approaches to regenerating and protecting our soils. The topics for the day are about integrating native plants, cover crop diversity, and organic matter into any growing regime.
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Elaine Ingham of the Soil Foodweb Inc.
World renowned soil biologist, Dr. Elaine Ingham will be linking soil organic matter to sustainable and profitable growing. The Soil Foodweb approach has been used on over 5 million acres worldwide, helping farmers, growers, and landscape professionals reduce their input costs and increase their yields by as much as 300%. Dr. Ingham is a leader in soil health working with people like us. Come and find out the why-and-how of soil organic matter, how to make it work for you, and ask your questions.
