HER presenting with Neal Kinsey in Hamilton, New Zealand Hosted by Kiwi Fertilizer

June 24, 2019 - June 26, 2019

What a great event this one’s gonna be.  If you’re near or far and need a skip across the pond to learn about soils, plants and animals, Kiwi Fertilizer is a very good host and brings together great teachers.  The teachers are in the seats as much as they are on the stand.   This is an opportunity for a truly enriching experience.

I recall my last trip there where I met wonderful producers with the highest integrity for nutrient dense food production.  I also met more female farm owners than I ever had.  There was also that one time, driving past a vineyard where there were what looked to be lambs grazing in the vineyard, but they were full grown sheep, pigmy sheep, that had been bred to stay small for the very purpose of grazing the rows between the vines.  What’s good with a glass of wine?  Grass fed sheep.
