Adventures in Dirt and Honey
Sarah Red-Laird envisions a future where kids frolic in pastures of flowers, buzzing with bees, alongside profitable family farmers and ranchers. She is currently leading a group of collaborators to create this reality through the ” Regenerative Bee Pasture” project. By regenerating soil through increasing plant diversity, incorporating animals, eliminating or reducing tillage, always leaving the soil covered (with plants), and leaving living roots in the soil, farmers and ranchers are increasing rainfall infiltration and reducing soil erosion, sequestering carbon into the soil, and building life beneath the soil surface which increases nutrient density in our food. As this movement jettisons ahead, Sarah wants to make sure that bees are completely considered. In this talk, she will share details on how her focus has transitioned to include not just beekeeping but also soil building, why this is important, and how you can take part in her vision for the future.
