Soil health was the focus for the very first Colorado STAR event held in Monta Vista, Colorado, on Aug. 13, 2022. The event was put on in conjunction with Acres U.S.A., the Colorado State Department of Agriculture, and Ground Up Consulting. It featured talks by Colorado Senator Cleave Simpson and Colorado State Representative Donald Valdez, as well as presentations by Oklahoma farmer Jimmy Emmons, Kansas farmer Brice Custer, and the Quivira Coalition.
Attendees were also able to visit either a rangeland or farming operation near Monte Vista, to see the effects of soil health management firsthand. See the full article with photos here at EcoFarmingDaily.com, or scroll down for a few stunning images from San Juan Ranch near Saguache, Colorado.
