"Severe soil degradation, rising input costs, and a chaotic climate are putting unprecedented pressure on agriculture. We’ve got to feed millions more people every year — but do it in a way that does not destroy soil, water, and local economies. Carbon Farming is the way to do it," said Ethan Roland, Organizer of the Carbon Farming Course.
The 2015 Carbon Farming Course will host some of the world’s most charismatic, experienced, and practical thinkers and practitioners of regenerative agriculture. They include; Greg Judy, an internationally-acclaimed holistic management educator; Dr. Elaine Ingham, former chief scientist for the Rodale Institute and now President of Soil Foodweb, Inc.; Abe Collins, the Northeast’s foremost expert on Keyline farming; Eric Toensmeier, award-winning author and permaculture specialist; and Mark Shepard, author of Restoration Agriculture and manager for New Forest Farm, considered to be one of the most ambitious sustainable agriculture projects in the United States.
"Meeting the challenge of climate change mitigation through carbon-friendly farming is both of utmost importance and really fascinating. There’s no better place to learn all about it than the Carbon Farming Course," said Toensmeier.
