Here are the details for this session:

Title: Healing Communities, the Earth, and Our Souls through Regenerative Agriculture

Description: We hear the words sustainable, ethical, ecological, green, carbon neutral, etc. frequently these days. What if rather than buying a new car – or switching over to the new advertised way of reducing our carbon footprint – we just need to go back to the basics?  Regenerative agriculture is the only carbon negative, natural food production system that reduces carbon in the atmosphere and produces nutritionally dense food at the same time. This workshop will include time for questions and answers as well as a brief walk to discuss the process of biomass accumulation and the various functions of things that our culture calls “weeds.”

Speaker Bio: Caleb Schenk is a husband, father, regenerative livestock rancher, and entrepreneur. He operates Deer Run Acres in Edinboro with his wife and children. Deer Run Acres is a 250-acre grazing operation that ethically raises ecologically sound food products for the Erie County community.
