Christine Jones  presents: Your land, your soil, your future - soil restoration for graziers

Monday May 24 - Kuitpo

9.15am-4pm

Cost: free

Dr Christine Jones holds a PhD in soil biochemistry and is an internationally recognised speaker. At this workshop she will show how grazing management designed to maximise the power of photosynthesis can create healthy soils, and will cover:

  • building soil through a 'liquid carbon' pathway
  • linking the life in soil to plant, animal and human health
  • the role of nitrogen and phosphorus
  • a farm walk to observe these ideas in action. 

This project is supported by the Department of Primary Industries and Regions South Australia, the Adelaide Hills Council, and the Hills and Fleurieu Landscape Board through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
