Building Healthy Soil Module
In this section, participants explore soil health and regenerative farming practices crucial for sustainable agriculture. The focus begins with understanding soil science, covering composition, structure, and nutrient cycles, highlighting the vital role of soil microorganisms in supporting crop productivity. The module then shifts to regenerative techniques such as cover cropping, crop rotation, and no-till practices aimed at transforming soil health. Composting and nutrient cycling are discussed as integral components of sustainable soil management. The accompanying design exercise guides participants through crafting and applying organic fertilizers, emphasizing practical skills and a commitment to regenerative farming techniques for soil health and ecological balance.
