Soil Health Summit

April 9 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for a Soil Health Summit on April 9 at the State House Inn in Springfield, bringing together farmers, organizations, agency officials, legislators, and other partners to explore how policy can enhance soil health and stewardship of our vital resources. We will hear what organizations like IL Corngrowers, American Farmland Trust, The Nature Conservancy, Soil Health Partnership, and others are doing to advance soil health and protect water quality in Illinois. We will explore the policy solutions other states have advanced with Duane Hovorka of Izaak Walton League and discuss the proposals under consideration in Illinois, including the Fall Covers for Spring Savings crop insurance reward for cover crops, conservation on publicly-leased farmland, and the Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy. Participants will break into small groups to “shakedown” the proposals to discuss what might work and what won’t in Illinois. The discussion will be followed by a keynote address by Illinois Stewardship Alliance Conservation Associate, Woody Woodruff, and a locally-sourced dinner.
