A fantastic opportunity to hear Joel Williams at an on-farm event in the Howardian Hills National Landscape. Choice of two sessions covering soil health, nutrition and pest management looking at multi species leys and cover crops. The morning session (10am – 1pm) will focus on crop rotation, the evening session (5.30 – 8.30pm) will focus on livestock integration (see other listing to book for the evening event).

Joel Williams is an independent plant and soil health educator and consultant who has worked extensively in Australia, Europe and Canada where he is currently based. He has a keen interest in agroecology, plant nutrition and plant and soil microbiomes and how these may support the development of sustainable production systems. Joel has a Bachelor of Agricultural Science specialising in plant and soil dynamics and an MSc in Food Policy where he explored motivations and barriers to the adoption of intercropping. Joel has a passion for teaching and sharing a combination of scientific and practical information and has lectured to farming audiences internationally.
