Join us on Friday December 6th, 2019 at Three Sisters Gardens as we dig deep into soil health and learn about how we can regenerate our soil while also healing our climate and nourishing our communities! This workshop will be led by local experts and will explore how we recover our soil from the years of neglect that have left them compacted and lacking essential nutrients.

Specific methods we’ll be discussing together include cover cropping and no-till agriculture along with some insight into how these methods help us to remove carbon from the atmosphere to mitigate the impacts of climate change. This workshop will also include an experiential component with a field demonstration at our site on Cummins Way in West Sacramento.

Food is free and will be provided by Indigenous chef Melissa Yringuez, of Baa Baa’s Kitchen. While the ingredients may not consist of Native foods, we want to honor and acknowledge that the fight for food sovereignty is one that is ongoing and a movement that we will continue to help build.

This is a FREE event that was collaboratively organized by American Farmland Trust, California, Intertribal Agriculture Council, and Three Sisters Gardens, Cummins Way Farm. It is intended to bring together underrepresented farmers including new farmers, socially and economically disadvantaged farmers, minority farmers, veteran, and urban farmers to participate in a discussion around sustainable agricultural practices.

Please be aware that this event is happening in December and that could mean dry or wet weather and definitely cold weather, so please dress for those circumstances. Should there be rain we have a backup indoor location we can utilize to keep us warm and dry.

Recommended clothing:
Boots or closed toe shoes
Pants
Jacket / Rain Jacket
A hat or beanie
