The Soil Revolution: Digging Deeper
Inviting Farmers and Ranchers of all scales and production systems
Join us December 14, 2017, at the Plaza Convention Center in Longmont, Colorado, for the “The Soil Revolution: Digging Deeper.” Based on the success of the March 2017 Soil Revolution Conference, we invite you to dig deeper into the science, benefits and practical applications of farming for soil health.
Third-generation biotic specialty potato farmer Brendon Rockey of Rockey Farms in Center, Colorado, will deliver the keynote address. Brendon’s approach focuses on supporting flourishing ecosystems. He will be joined by producers from Boulder County, the State of Colorado and the southwestern United States. Other soil health experts from the USDA-NRCS and Colorado State University will share their expertise.
