Tillage is one of the oldest tenets of agriculture. It can be difficult to imagine breaking away from such a deep-seated, and yet destructive practice, but what if we did? Non-mechanized no-till organic agriculture can be a solution to numerous local and global problems including food insecurity, climate change, nutrient depletion, water pollution, habitat loss, unemployment, and small farm economic viability. Join us for a discussion on soil health, habitat resiliency and intensive no-till vegetable agriculture with farmers from the award winning Singing Frogs Farm in Sebastopol.

Paul Kaiser is a leader in ecological agriculture who was recently recognized with a local Leadership in Sustainability Award as well as an international Farmer/Rancher Award for his work in biodiversity and pollinator conservation on his farm, Singing Frogs Farm. Paul began his career in agroforestry in the tropics working to convert degraded lands into economically viable and biologically diverse and resilient farmland. Since then Paul has received dual Masters Degrees in Natural Resources Management and Sustainable Development. In the last eight years, Paul and his wife Elizabeth have married sustainable land management with local food production at their biodiverse, no-till, and family friendly Singing Frogs Farm in Sebastopol.
