Clear Spring, MD

Who:  Nicole Masters, New Zealand, Integrity Soils, a soil ecologist who travels the world teaching and learning about farming systems and how to improve soil health.  She’ll explain how to walk your pastures and use the plants and other indicators you find as messengers to explain what your pastures need to become a healthy, fully functioning grazing system. You’ll learn how to improve the soil ecosystem (mycorrhizal fungi, bacteria, etc) to boost pasture health. What are some of the most useful inputs? How can you reduce or eliminate the need for inputs long-term?
