Special Seminar facilitated at the Soltis Center “Soil Carbon and Sustainable Agriculture” by Christine Jones

On Monday Feb 16th-2015, the Soltis Center, in collaboration with Luna Nueva Lodge (Luna Nueva Extractos), co-hosted and facilitated a seminar presentation on soil carbon. The seminar was magisterially presented by Dr Cristine Jones, internationally acclaimed agricultural consultant and soil carbon scientist, active participant and supporter of the Australian movement into a Soil Carbon Accreditation Scheme. With numerous journals and publications produced on regenerative land management techniques, Dr Jones shared with more than 50 participants, among faculty and students and farmers from the area, the state of art findings on liquid carbon pathways and conservation agriculture. Dr. Jones’ work demonstrates how the regeneration of healthy, biologically rich soil on farms and in landscapes can remove excess carbon from the atmosphere, cool our climate globally and locally, and guarantee food and water security.
