Healthy soil is resilient soil

Saturday 5 February 2022, 8.30am-2pm at Zillman Flat Road, Roadvale, and presented by Boonah and District Landcare Inc. 

Learn how to evaluate the health of your soil, and monitor its functionality and select suitable natural fertilisers.

Healthy soil is critical to plant nutrition and water retention. Our presenter is Sarah Fea from BEAR (Bare Essential Agricultural Resource management) Biologics. Sarah has a passionate vision of how the agricultural industries of our future could function holistically, creating far more resilient communities for all species up and down the food chain. Sarah comes from a strong mixed enterprise agricultural background in covering the Moonie, Dalby and Pittsworth regions, and has worked in many regions of Australia, mainly southern Qld, northern NSW and the Northern Territory.

Sarah takes a holistic approach with soil health being the core "engine" of her work. The aim of her education initiatives are to assist producers in their transition from conventional practices to biological regenerative "soil health maximising" practises, whilst also educating consumers to make a similar transition with their food choices.

Sarah has hosted events with Dr Arden Andersen, Neal Kinsey, Prof Don Huber, Dr Christine Jones, Graeme Saite, Dr Richard Olree, Dr Charles Massy, Walter Jehne, and Nicole Masters to name a few.

Whatever the size and purpose of the land you manage, this topic will be of interest if you want to manage your land from the ground up - starting with healthy soil.

Please bring a chair and water bottle. Wear suitable footwear, a hat and sunscreen.

Morning tea and lunch will be provided.

COVID* If you have symptoms or have been in contact with an identified case leading up to this event, please stay away. We will be outdoors. It is advisable to bring a mask.
