Description

The answers to the crisis of climate change, food sovereignty, health, and well-being are all rooted in SOIL.

The Institute for Mindful Agriculture presents a winter workshop with soil scientist Will Brinton of Woods End Laboratories and Gidon Eshel, Research Professor, Environmental and Urban Studies at Bard College.

This interactive and experiential gathering at Hawthorne Valley Farm dives into the many different yet interconnected strands of soil health including physical, biological, and spiritual. What's soil got to do with it? Everything!

IMA's three soils framework helps harness agriculture's emerging role as healer.

1. Natural Soil - Problem: Disconnect of human beings from the life of the earth and the healthy practice of agricultural techniques.

Remedy: Growing healthy Natural Soil through regenerative agriculture techniques – inspired by the holistic approach of biodynamic agriculture.

2. Social Soil - Problem: Disconnect of human beings from the suffering and pain of one another caused by an inequitable food system.

Remedy: Developing regional food sheds that are formed by growing Social Soil among all the players in our food system: producers, eaters, food processors and food distribution handlers.

3. Inner Soil - Problem: Disconnect within each human being of finding a meaningful way to be in creative relationship with self, human community and the Earth.

Remedy: Cultivation of the Inner Soil within each human being by ‘coming to our senses’ through reflective inner practice relating to life, beauty and sacredness of nature and our Earth as a Planetary Being.
