Symbiotic Impact of Agroecology and the Soil Food Web
February 15 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
With Syntropic Agriculture Founder, Ernst Gotsch
Feb. 15, 2024 :: 11am PT / 7pm UK
Unlock solutions to pressing environmental challenges in our webinar with Ernst Gotsch and SFW Student, Philip Barton. Ernst will introduce us to his Agroecological Farming Model and will share his experience and vast knowledge about management, ecosystem benefits, and pest and disease issues, as well as highlighting some of the projects he’s worked on around the world, including a soy and cotton plantation where yields increased by 130%. Philip partnered with Ernst to compare the soil biology of 4 Brazilian landscapes and found remarkable differences in soil microbiology. This research underscores the transformative potential of combining Agroecological Farming and the SFW Approach as a blueprint for regenerative agriculture.
