Are you motivated to build engaged teams on working lands that successfully implement management activities aligned with healthy soil principles?

Do you want to increase resilience in ranching and farming by working together to build healthy soil? In this webinar series we will introduce Quivira’s Soil Health Planning Program and provide instruction and coaching of some key skills to being an effective Planner. When you register, you will receive an advanced PDF copy of the new technical guide Planning for Soil Health: Instructional Workbook to Become an Agrarian Planner to provide expanded detail of all topics.

The webinar is intended for ranch, farm, and land managers, Planners and Technical Service Providers and those interested in becoming Soil Health Planners for themselves or in their communities.

Webinar Details: This is a multi-part virtual “brown bag” series – you may attend one or all of the webinars! Sessions include skills building, interviews with ranchers/farmers who have gone through the planning process and coaching/listening focused on a particular component/skill set for planning.
