Lead with Land

Sunday, April 14 - Wednesday, April 17, 2019

What if you had the opportunity to expand your understanding of the regenerative power of your land? At Lead with Land, we seek to deepen the network of mission-driven landowners who are working to or aspire to regenerate soils and effectively steward farmland and ranchland. This convening supports landowners’ ability to recognize healthy soil as a way toward healthy food, families, communities, economies, and a healthy planet.

Who Should Attend
Attendance for the Lead with Land is by invitation-only and is geared towards landowners or landstewards who have a strong land-based mission and are interested in advancing their own capacities to regenerate soil and community.

Compost Bootcamp: Biostimulant Strategies for Regenerative Ag
A Hands-on Intensive with Gerry Gillespie & Christine Jones at Paicines Ranch

Two dates offered: June 6 or June 7, 2019

The Paicines Ranch Learning Center is offering this one-day workshop focused on how to make and apply beneficial life-supporting seed and soil inoculants in place of high analysis fertilizers and seed dressings. Topics include quorum sensing, replacing nitrogen fertilizers, transitioning to a microbial approach, and the application of auto-inducers to seeds to enable a reduction of inputs and costs in order to regenerate soils.

Learning Goals
Bioferments, Biostimulants, Biofertilizers, and Compost inoculants are simple biotechnologies that can be made on the farm to help improve soil condition, stimulate plant growth and improve plant health. We will explore basic recipes for making this on-farm in an interactive, first-hand experience with a small group of participants in order to develop the skills and confidence to make and use your own products, with minimal to no local inputs with no add-on costs. Equipment used for making and applying biostimulants will be available for viewing and explanation.

About Christine Jones
Christine’s teaching style is interactive, dynamic, and draws from a truly amazing depth of understanding of soil ecology. She has a unique ability to make complex systems easily understandable and relevant and has been one of the most powerful influences on the success of our management practices here at Paicines Ranch. So much so, that this is her fourth workshop with us and she always ‘packs the house’ with an equally amazing crowd.

About Gerry Gillespie
Gerry has been involved in the recovery of organic materials and their reuse in agricultural soils for the past 30 years both in Australia and overseas. Following a leadership role in the No Waste by 2010 strategy for the ACT Government, Gerry became the founding Manager of the Zero Waste Trust in New Zealand, and a public speaker in many international programs and events on Resource Recovery, including work in the UK, France, USA, Japan, China, and Taiwan.

Registration & Cost
This workshop is limited to 45 participants each day. Cost for the one-day workshop is $250 per person and includes a delicious, local lunch.
