Coming Up! Healthy Soils Workshop #2 and the New Mexico Beaver Summit

You are invited to two important, upcoming workshops!

FREE Healthy Soils Workshop at Rio Fernando Park

Cover crops, no-till seeding, and home garden applications – Online Webinar – Part 2 of 2
Monday, October 26th, 2020 at 5:30 PM
For a link to the zoom webinar, email: ben@taoslandtrust.org
Hosts:
Ben Wright – Taos Land Trust Land Projects and Education Coordinator
Chris Pieper – Flourish Farms, Arroyo Seco
The Taos Land Trust invites you to join the second of two online workshops to explore the concepts behind regenerative and restorative healthy soils practices and their applications in progress at Rio Fernando Park.
Principles of Healthy Soils
1) Keep soil covered
2) Minimize soil disturbance & external inputs
3) Maximize biodiversity
4) Maintain living roots
5) Integrate animals
This workshop will introduce cover crops, no-till seeding, and further assessments of soil health. We will provide details on cover crop seed cocktails and their function, no-till seeding techniques for both small gardens as well as larger acreage, and further information on these practices at Rio Fernando Park and Flourish Farms.

New Mexico Beaver Summit! 

 
 
Living with Beavers (Tuesday, October 27th, 1:00 – 3:30 pm MDT)
Why Beavers (Friday, October 30th, 1:00 – 3:30 pm MDT)
Return of the Beaver (Monday, November 2nd, 1:00 – 3:30 pm MDT)
Keynote speaker (time TBD): Mary O’Brien, Grand Canyon Trust
 
As many of you are aware, the mounting impacts of climate change over recent decades has led to a broader understanding and appreciation for the ecosystem benefits that beavers provide and has encouraged landowners and land managers to embrace this aquatic rodent. Still, many people continue to view beavers only as a nuisance. As a result, many watersheds remain devoid of this native species and conflicts remain common.
Over the course of four separate sessions, the New Mexico Beaver Summit will explore these questions with expert panelists discussing the importance of beavers from historical, cultural, and ecological perspectives, the challenges of living with beavers, tools that allow humans and beavers to coexist, and how to promote the recovery and repatriation of beavers through habitat restoration and reintroduction.
