Healthy Seeds in Healthy Soil for a Healther Us: How Regenerative Organic Agriculture Can Heal our Farms, Our Planet and Our People

This is the second in our series of events, "Gallatin Valley 2040". Bob Quinn  - author of the acclaimed book "Grain by Grain: A Quest to Revive Ancient Wheat, Rural Jobs and Healthy Food" (with Liz Carlisle) - is an organic farmer near Big Sandy, Montana and a leading green businessman - founder of Kamut Intl. and Montana's first wind farm. In this program, Bob explains how regenerative, organic agriculture can heal our farms, our planet and our people. His storytelling will draw you in as he tells how he switched to organic farming, and how he rediscovered ancient wheat varieties that are better for the environment, better for our health, and more profitable for farmers. After Bob's talk, State Senator Pat Flowers talks about the proposed State Soil Health Study bill in the state legislature; a bill which will study ways that Montana can encourage improvements in soil health.
