Learn about how Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms is working to develop vegetable farming systems that eliminate synthetic fertilizers, increase soil water holding capacity, and stimulate soil microbial activity all while sequestering more carbon.
Participants will learn how the practices that promote healthy soils can also lead to positive outcomes for water quality, water security and other environmental benefits, with a focus on the California context.
Biochar is a term used to describe charred, organic material that is applied to soils with the intent to improve soil properties. Many sources of organic matter may be used, but can impact the properties of the biochar.
The effects of urban development write a profound signature on the landscape. Soils are inevitably compacted and regraded or paved over.
This webinar will demonstrate the role carbon plays in crop rotations with cover crops. Participate in this training to learn how carbon enters the plant and ultimately the soil.
As the pace of urban development increases, urban green spaces, and urban trees in particular, come in direct conflict with bulldozers and backhoes.
Viewers will learn about native vegetation’s applicability to a myriad of conservation practices beyond wildlife uses through an exploration of the supporting scientific research applied throughout the tall grass prairie and southeastern grasslands regi
Learn about how to evaluate sites that are ideal for urban tree health and growth and resources and tools on how to better assess these sites.

Degraded soils and loss of soil functions necessary for the production of food and fiber are a result of most agricultural systems around the world. Interest in soil health is growing as producers and governments are discovering how agricultural soils
