Soil Health Academy – Evansville, IN

July 16 @ 8:00 am - July 18 @ 5:00 pm EDT

Farmers looking to reduce input costs, bring life and hope back to the farm, and restore profitability will see firsthand how one Evansville farmer successfully and profitably did just that by transitioning his conventional farm into a regenerative showcase.

Recently, the non-profit Soil Health Academy (SHA) announced that the Bittner Farm will host one of the organization’s upcoming three-day schools, July 16-18. Owned and operated by fifth-generation farmer Pat Bittner, the farm has been in the Bittner family for 150 years and now features 8-12-way, high biomass cover crop cocktail mixes; “planting green” and crimping; among other regenerative principles and practices.

In this “outdoor classroom”, the SHA school will bring folks from all over together with different levels of experience and facilitate conversation about how regenerative agriculture principles are being applied within the context of the host farm. By understanding how to enable nature’s processes through the principles and rules of soil health, farmers can pay for their time at this academy within the first week of when they get back home—if they are intentional in truly regenerating their operation.

• Discover the benefits of using high-biomass covers to mulch cash crops;
• Save money planting “green;”
• Realize soil Improvement from using covers;
• Understand equipment considerations;
• Make input and timing changes; and
• Stack multiple on-farm enterprises. “

To further ensure participant success, tuition for the on-farm school includes registration for SHA’s online Regen Ag 101 course, two follow-up, one-on-one video conferences with SHA experts and access to future group conference calls with the course’s instructors.
