Welcome to the fourth of the monthly expert panel discussions. As I mentioned in the past, each month I’ll be hosting discussions and debates between some of the most prominent voices in regenerative agriculture, soil science, restoration land management and more. If you’re a subscribing patreon member, you’ll also be invited to the live events and the open Q&A for listeners after the panel.
In this session, I hosted a discussion on regenerating agricultural soil with my friends and colleagues at Climate Farmers, a non-profit organization working to advance regenerative agriculture in Europe.
In this panel I got two of my favorite educators on the subject of soil science together to talk about how to build fertility and holistic health in agricultural soils. Since these discussions are longer than the regular weekly episodes, I’ll keep the introduction short and jump right into the introductions for our two panelists
John Kempf has taken on the bold mission of having regenerative models of agriculture management become the mainstream globally by 2040.
In addition to being a former grower himself, John is the founder of Advancing Eco Agriculture, Crop Health Labs, Ozadia, and the Regenerative Agriculture Academy. He also hosts the Regenerative Agriculture Podcast, where he interviews top growers and scientists about the principles and practice of implementing regenerative agriculture on a large scale.
Dr. Ingham discovered the soil food web nearly 4 decades ago and has been pioneering research ever since. Widely recognised as the world’s foremost soil biologist, she’s passionate about empowering ordinary people to bring the soils in their community back to life.
Dr. Elaine’s™ Soil Food Web Approach has been used to successfully restore the ecological functions of soils on six continents. She has helped to make soil health knowledge available to people with no relevant experience – making it accessible to individuals who wish to retrain and to begin a meaningful and impactful career in an area that will help to secure the survival of humans and other species.
So let’s jump right in!
