This online event is organised by Climate Farmers.

As the effects of climate change have an increasing impact, one of most severe is the erratic and unpredictable effect on rainfall. It’s becoming clear that even non-brittle landscapes are becoming susceptible to both drought and inundation as precipitation patterns become less frequent and more severe.

In this expert panel we’ll discuss the ways that farmers can help restore the healthy hydrological cycle through land management practices. Through revegetation, protection of riparian zones, improvement of soils, and much more.

Joining us on this panel are three of the most influential voices in landscape hydrology restoration from around the world:

Nicole Masters is an independent agroecologist, systems thinker, storyteller, educator and author of the book “For the Love of Soil.” With over 20 years of practical and theoretical experience in regenerative agriculture, she is also recognized as a knowledgeable and dynamic speaker on the topic of soil health.

Zach Weiss is the protégé of revolutionary Austrian farmer Sepp Holzer, Zach is the first person to earn Holzer Practitioner certification directly from Sepp. Zach went on to create Elemental Ecosystems to provide an action-oriented process to improve clients’ relationship with their landscape. Elemental Ecosystems is an ecological development, contracting, and consulting firm specializing in watershed restoration and ecosystem regeneration.

Mark Shepard is the CEO of Forest Agriculture Enterprises LLC, founder of Restoration Agriculture Development LLC and award-winning author of the books, Restoration Agriculture and Water for Any Farm. He is most widely known as the founder of New Forest Farm, the 106-acre perennial agricultural savanna considered by many to be one of the most ambitious sustainable agriculture projects in the United States.

The interview portion of the panel will be 60 minutes with 30 minutes afterward for listener questions
