Fifteen years ago Gary Zimmer shored up the foundations of ecofarming with his landmark book The Biological Farmer. In the years in between GMOs arrived, along with increased herbicide use, superweeds, and a host of other conventional farming ills. In this whirlwind talk he’ll address what has been learned and discuss the current state of the art — and state of the science — of modern biological farming. Learn the lessons role model farmers have to teach about effective, profitable organic/biological farming for the 21st century.
