Regenerative Farming workshop with Andre Leu – Labertouche
June 29, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Labertouche Sustainable Farming Group & WPCLN invite all farmers to attend a workshop on Regenerative Agriculture. This is an approach that works with natural systems. It embraces soil biology, biodiversity, water management, long grazing rotations, green manure crops, legumes, compost, agroforestry and landscape literacy.
As more research is done, farmers and scientists are understanding how plants and soil organisms can not only reduce the need for chemical inputs but also effectively capture and transfer carbon from the atmosphere to the soil.
André Leu, a farmer, author, past president of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements and signatory to the
Paris Climate agreement, claims “Regenerative agriculture can not only reduce chemical inputs but can change agriculture from being a major contributor to climate change to becoming a major solution.”
This is an opportunity not to be missed!
