Webinar: Grazing for Health: Creating Nutrient Dense Animal Foods From Soil To Milk

April 28, 2020 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Anywhere, MA


These days plant-based meat and dairy substitutes are being heralded as the answer to our climate and healthcare crisis. But does this tell the whole story? What if dairies are actually part of solving for climate change, food quality declines, and regional food security? Join Jordan Schmidt, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Sarah, owner and manager of Chaseholm Farm, for a conversation about regenerative livestock farming and its potential to enhance ecosystem function and human health. Using the work conducted at Chaseholm Farm as the frame, the webinar will guide the participants on a journey from soil to milk and meat. We will highlight the regenerative soil practices employed and the changes these farmers have seen in their livestock health, soil health and local ecosystem. This webinar is for those interested in regenerative agriculture and human nutrition. They might just be totally intertwined!

Presenter:   Jordan Schmidt – Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

Sarah Chase - Owner of Chaseholm Farm
