Regenerative Agriculture: Details of a Profitable Journey

Gabe Brown, Nationally Recognized Farmer, and Rancher, to Speak on Regenerative Agriculture

The Center for Agrarian Learning at McHenry County College (MCC) announces the next event in their virtual speaker series, Forefront: Ideas in Food and Farming. “Regenerative Agriculture: Details of a Profitable Journey,” presented on Sunday, December 13 at 1 p.m., explores the key principles of healthy ecosystems and defines ways these strategies can be applied to farms, ranches, and gardens of any size.

Nationally recognized North Dakota farmer and rancher Gabe Brown will discuss the six consistent principles of healthy ecosystems and describe how attendees can work with these concepts to cultivate healthy soil, plants, animals, people, and even profits. He’ll also share the personal story of how he and his family took a broken, degraded, and unprofitable farm and regenerated it into a healthy, profitable farm teeming with life.

“We’re so excited to share Gabe’s expertise with our community,” said Sheri Doyel, director of the Center for Agrarian Learning at MCC. “He’s truly an innovator in the world of farming, and is perhaps best known for popularizing the concept of using cover crop cocktails to jumpstart soil health and nourish soil biology. Everyone who attends will leave with tangible takeaways that can be applied to their own agricultural endeavors.”

The session is free to attend, but registration is required. Those interested can visit www.mchenry.edu/forefront to register. A Zoom link will be emailed 48 hours before the event. This event will not be recorded, so live via Zoom is the only way to view the presentation. Registration ends 48 hours before the event on Friday, December 11 at 1 p.m.

MCC’s Center for Agrarian Learning launched in 2019 as a resource hub designed to connect growers to the people and ideas they need to succeed via noncredit classes, seminars, and technical assistance. The Center for Agrarian Learning is funded in part through the Searle Funds at The Chicago Community Trust. Food:Land:Opportunity is a collaboration between Kinship Foundation and The Chicago Community Trust.
