The greatest treasure for any farmer is not buried in the soil… it IS the soil. With that in mind and knowing that healthy soils are key to a vibrant agriculture, clean water and air, and provide a home to microorganisms that play a fundamental role in all ecosystems, the Farm Foundation and the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation is offering a new, free seminar, titled, “The Soil Renaissance,” on July 16, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. EDT at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
William Buckner, President and CEO of the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation, will moderate the Forum. Panelists will include:
Wayne Honeycutt, Deputy Chief for Science and Technology, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service,
Jimmy Kinder, Oklahoma farmer,
John Larson, Executive Director, National Association of Conservation Districts, and
Klaas Martens, New York state farmer, invited.
You can attend in person or for those people unable to attend, a live audiocast of this free forum will be provided. Just click here for more information and to register.
