Online conversations on soil health
Our guest starts with a short presentation, followed by conversation with participants.
Mary Lucero, PhD devoted more than 30 years to scientific research and education in agriculture and environmental sciences examining the microbial ecosystems that drive plant and soil health. With each project she completed, she became more convinced that the regenerative approach offers enormous promise for growers, for consumers, and for the future.
In 2020, Mary and her husband, David (who brings a background in agricultural finance, marketing, and production) began building a diversified farm where they are raising fruit trees, cover crops, and enough beef and poultry to keep the land at its best. Their goal is to apply cutting edge science to developing an ecologically and economically regenerative system.
