Presentations on building more productive soil and soil carbon

The Hawke’s Bay Future Farming Trust is sponsoring three presentations offering an introduction to alternative pasture and grazing systems that can regenerate better soils and build soil carbon on your farm.

Our presenter is Siobhan Griffin.

Siobhan has spent 25 years managing her own farm, learning that working with nature gets the best results. She coaches farmers to build topsoil working with their livestock, grazing deep-rooted and diverse pastures to build and regenerate soil carbon on New Zealand sheep/beef and dairy farms.

Originally from the USA, Siobhan now lives in New Zealand and understands New Zealand pastoral farming systems.

Throughout her presentations, Siobhan gives New Zealand working examples of what outcomes look like, followed by Q&A with refreshments.

Here are the three presentations dates, times, locations:
