Soil Regeneration workshop

This October, 18 people from 5 different states in Mexico joined us in the Sierra Gorda for Bosque Sustentable’s Soil Regeneration workshop. Participants learned about Holistic Management, which represents a logical approach to understanding and working with nature, and included training on regenerative grazing; low-cost organic fertilizing techniques; Keyline design; how to biologically monitor their land; organic agriculture techniques and healthy eating.

In the Sierra Gorda, we promote fertile soils, free from agro-chemicals and with better water-holding capacity; food sovereignty, working for nature not against it; and understanding the great diversity of living things both above and below the soil.  In addition to practical and effective tips on sustainable agriculture, these workshops help to shift farmers’ paradigm of how to work their land; re-directing their focus to the soil’s health and the importance of managing their natural resources sustainably, regeneratively, and with a long-term view. The success of such workshops means that communities both in the Sierra Gorda and beyond are better equipped to mitigate the affects of climate change, while sustainably working and even improving their lands.
