What is Regenerative Agriculture?
TREE PLANTING - CARBON SEQUESTRATION
We have long had a dream of turning our historical farm into a sustainable education and community center for soil regeneration, water retention and organic gardens. We are now moving towards that goal, but we need to put some infrastructure in place.
The immediate plan is to install a 6,000 tree windbreak and soundbreak along Hwy 36 and Lake of the Pines border to combat soil erosion from those 130 mph winds that sweep our plains. This protection will also offer pasturing animals another source of shade and forage material.
The windbreak consists of a front row of Blue Spruce or Douglas Fir, with a second colorful row of Black Locust, Sugar Maple and Autumn Blaze Maple, followed by a third row of nitrogen fixing thorny and flowering shrubs to protect our Silvopasture and discourage the deer and elk.
