Colin Andrews, Chair of The Tiyeni Fund

Colin joined the team of Tiyeni, our charity partner for the Soil Regen Summit, in 2013. On Day 1 of the Summit, Colin will present on the topic of “Livelihood Problems for Malawi farmers.” He will explain the extent of malnutrition and hunger due to decreasing productivity of farmlands and, in some communities, abject poverty. Colin will also describe solutions to those challenges.

Rick Clark, Farmer, founder of Farm Green Consulting

Rick Clark is a 5th generation farmer in Warren County, Indiana where he and his family operate 7,000 acre Clark Land & Cattle. Rick believes in the importance of soil health, and successfully utilizes regenerative practices such as cover cropping and no-till methods. His crops include corn, soybeans, wheat, alfalfa, and field peas.

Darren will outline the platform using examples of it in action.

Dr. Elaine Ingham, Soil Biology Pioneer, Soil Food Web School Founder

On Day 1, Dr. Ingham’s presentation will be “What is Regenerative Ag: The Return of Life to the Soil.” An internationally-recognized leader in soil microbiology, Dr. Ingham has collaborated with other scientists and with farmers around the world to further our understanding of how soil organisms work together and with plants.

John Kempf, Farmer, founder of Advancing Eco Agriculture

John’s presentation is entitled “Plant Health Creates Soil Health.” It is commonly said that it takes healthy soil to produce healthy crops, but what does it take to produce healthy soil? John will talk about the ways in which healthy plants support healthy soils.

Nicole Masters, Author, Agroecologist, founder of Integrity Soils 

The title of Nicole’s talk is “Next Big Ticket or the Next Big Shift?” and she will discuss how any practice can result in soil building or soil degradation; the outcomes are dependent on the hands and mindset of the people on the ground. Nicole will address the question “How can we connect more deeply with our contexts to supercharge our soils?”

Chris Trump, Educator, Korean Natural Farmer

Chris’ presentation is entitled “The success and struggle stories of real commercial farmers using Korean Natural Farming.” Chris speaks with commercial farmers from the U.S. and abroad using Korean Natural Farming technologies on their farms. He’ll share what works, what’s the bottom line, and what are the struggles in this series of conversations with revolutionaries in their industries. Wine grapes at scale, golf turf management, 1,000-acre mechanized row crops, cannabis, and an Irish dairy are all covered.
