Climate Solutions Are Grown In Soil 

2020 Keynote speaker Tim LaSalle

Super Early Bird Special – Register Online till Jan 31st

The time is now for soil health to be relied upon for carbon drawdown on an equal plane as renewable energy so the two can work hand in hand to mitigate the crisis earth is facing. When Tim LaSalle says, “We’ve been farming the carbon out of our soils”, we can be inspired to learn how to increase our abilities to farm the carbon back into our soil and regenerate the living conditions on earth.

Join NOFA/Mass at Big River Chestnuts in Sunderland, MA with Buzz Ferver from Perfect Circle Farm for a nutty day focused on how to propagate nut trees (and more) for your farm and homestead. Spend the morning learning everything about starting nuts and woody fruit from seed and the afternoon discussing clonal propagation and practicing some grafting techniques. At the end of the day Jono Neiger will give us a tour of his farm where, since 2018, he has developed a diversified agroforestry system with blight-resistant chinese chestnuts, heartnuts, elderberries, aronia, and other crops.
