Please join the Ojai Valley Green Coalition, Santa Barbara Permaculture Network & community partners for an evening talk with Australian farmer, author, and internationally recognized leader in regenerative agriculture, Darren Doherty, on Thursday, September 11, 7pm, at the Ojai's Women's Club in Ojai.
Part of the 2014 Regrarians World Tour, Darren Doherty shares his vision of restoring degraded agriculture and other broadacre landscapes found across the USA and other parts of the world with regenerative strategies for soil creation, water harvesting, and most exciting, capturing atmospheric carbon dioxide (carbon sequestration) to help address global climate change, using the microbiology of healthy soils.
Regrarians (Regrarians = Regenerative Agrarians) is a term coined by Darren to describe the serious and timely process of regenerating, restoring, rehabilitating, rekindling and rebooting healthy production landscapes across the planet. And not a moment too soon, with California currently facing serious issues of drought, severe soil loss and degradation, polluted waters, and potentially devastating wildfires; all needing innovative solutions.
Darren Doherty has extensive experience across the world in project design, development, management & training. A career-long focus on the profitable & regenerative retrofit of broadacre landscapes has seen Darren acclaimed as a pioneer in this important field. He is an internationally renowned fifth generation farmer, permaculture teacher, author and trainer who has developed close to two thousand projects in fifty countries and five continents. He created and teaches Keyline Design®, Carbon Farming, Regenerative Agriculture, along with the RegenAG® + Regrarians® course series currently used world wide.
A panel discussion will follow the talk, facilitated by Leif Skogberg of the Ojai Foundation, who will host a 3 day Regrarian Workshop with Darren Doherty Sept 12th-14th. (see below for more information).
