Climate Proofing Your Farm: 1-day Workshop with Hugh Lovel

“Climate Proofing your Farm, while getting your Nitrogen for free”

Presented by renowned international agricultural adviser Hugh Lovel, Transition Kerry and NOTS are delighted to present this full-day workshop for the incredible discounted price of €40. The course will take place on Wednesday February 26th at the Ballygarry House Hotel in Tralee, Co Kerry.

This is a 1-day course outlining how farmers can climate proof their farms and reduce external inputs / costs by getting nitrogen and most of what our plants need for free.

Hugh consults for conventional, organic and biodynamic farmers in Europe, Africa,  Australia , USA and New Zealand. He advises farmers in all sectors – from dairy, beef and sheep to horticultural and wine producers.

Learn how agriculture works in harmony with nature and how to improve yields, eliminate weeds, and improve crop responses to weather while harvesting both carbon dioxide and nitrogen from the atmosphere and building these into the humus in our soils.

Learn how to use soil biology and chemistry to understand how we can get our on farm nitrogen and other minerals for free. Hugh will help farmers to work with natural and environmentally beneficial methods of fixing nitrogen with minimal external inputs. Key to the course will be understanding the Biochemical process and how we can use it to feed our soil and plants.
