Living Soil and Organic Inputs: Understanding Your Environmental Impact

September 28, 2019 | 11:40 am | Room 1 | Cultivation

Growing organically and in living soil might not be as environmentally friendly as you think. In this seminar Chip Baker will educate attendees on what “organic” means, challenge preconceived notions of sustainability and organic fertilizers,
and encourage sustainable environmental impact in organic production.

He will discuss the origins of organic fertilizers, the different types of organic inputs, examining the environmental costs of obtaining organic fertilizers,
strip mining, waste-water runoff, and human toxicity.

Organic doesn’t mean what you think.
