Thursday, February 23rd
Soil microbes are critical to the process, but microbes alone won’t do the trick for farmers looking to convert from conventional methods to a regenerative approach while maintaining (if not increasing) current yields.
With hundreds of products on the market, all claiming to be the next big thing, Bart helps distill it down to the top 20 natural inputs that can drive all of the growth and plant health you need to be more profitable than your competitors. From bypassing biochar to getting your compost application right, he bucks the trends, saving you time and money this season.
For many years, Bart Eller was the director of Paonia.com Inc, bringing Internet service to under-served communities globally. Ten years ago he launched the Paonia Soil Co. As the Executive Director, Bart gets to combine his expertise in business and infrastructure with his love of horticulture, resulting in the joy of building organic soil mixes to share with you.
As a speaker, Bart is known for combining many natural and organic farming disciplines including permaculture, no-till, keyline, and many other regenerative practices into a simple methodology that both novice gardeners and professional farmers can understand and apply for a healthier crop season after season.
