Pasa Sustainable Agriculture Hosts March 29 Virtual New Soil Health Tools, Insights & Opportunities For Experienced Farmers Program

Pasa Sustainable Agriculture will host a March 29 virtual New Soil Health Tools, Insights and Opportunities for Experienced Farmers Program from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Before you get swept up in the rush of the growing season, take a break from the field to get rooted in soil health during this virtual half-day intensive for experienced farmers and research collaborators.
This event is suitable for vegetable, pastured livestock, and row crop farm managers or we recommend you have at least three years of experience managing soil health.

Learn about the latest data from Pasa’s Soil Health Benchmark Study, get research updates from Rodale Institute, discover new soil health and decision management tools for your farm, connect with other farmers and research collaborators, and find out about funding opportunities to support soil health practices on your farm. 

This advanced intensive is a great opportunity to soak up new, practical soil health knowledge and inspiration for the season ahead. 

Soil Health Benchmark Study research collaborators from Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Maine are strongly encouraged to attend.
