A new biological agriculture has emerged to improve fertilizer efficiency, grow crops with superior nutrition, end soil erosion, curb water pollution, and save farmers money. This new farming is climate-smart, reduces our threat of climate change, supports local community economies, improves community food security & resilience, adapts to the impacts of global warming.

This new, fully probiotic agriculture boosts soil carbon, balances minerals and revives the Soil Food Web. With full spectrum fertility and thriving soil biology, crops grow with optimum nutrients, maximum health and minimum stress.

Benefits to growers are many:
   Stable, steady soil moisture
   Greater fertilizer efficiency
   Less leaching & nutrient loss
   Reduced fertilizer use
   Lower input expense
   Higher yields
   Less tillage, easier tillage
   Better bio-availability of nutrients
   Better insect & disease resistance
   Improved drought tolerance
   Enhanced crop quality & nutrition
   Greater farm profitability
   SAVE MONEY

FAMILY DISCOUNTS
includes lunch, literature & soil trial ingredients
reservations recommended
overnight rooms at Woodpecker Lodge available

David Yarrow
investigates, teaches & demonstrates new probiotic methods & materials of 21st Century sustainable agriculture to enhance soil fertility by boosting minerals & microbes, including biochar, compost, sea minerals, micronized rockdust, microbe inoculation, compost tea, cover crops, Brix tests, and minimum tillage.
David Yarrow advocates
L.I.F.E.
Locally Integrated Food & Energy
as a fundamental plan of action
to restore financial solvency to community economies
