Regenerative agriculture with Joel Salatin

Regenerative agriculture with Joel Salatin

Local farmers wanting to learn more about regenerative agriculture will have the opportunity to learn from one of America’s most influential farmers Joel Salatin later this month.

Regenerative agriculture is designed to build or regenerate soil health through maintaining soil organic matter, minimum tillage, crop rotation, cover crops, green manures, composting, mulching and biodiversity.

Natural Resources Kangaroo Island (NRKI) Sustainable Production manager, Grant Flanagan, said Joel Salatin is a farmer, author and lecturer who draws on experiences from his family-owned, multigenerational, pasture-based “Polyface” farm.

“Joel Salatin links profitable regenerative farming, with social, cultural and economic philosophy.”

Mr Salatin will be visiting KI on February 27 and 28 and will present on succession planning, direct marketing as well as regenerative farming.

The Kangaroo Island Natural Resources Management Board invites local farmers to join Joel Salatin on a farm tour to learn about regenerative agriculture, and to hear from local farmers who are successfully implementing this system.

The presentation is supported by Kangaroo Island Natural Resources Management Board through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme. To register contact the Natural Resource Centre on 8553 4440 or email grant.flanagan@sa.gov.au
