Paicines Ranch, CA
Paicines Ranch Learning Centeris excited to welcome Nicole Masters in leading a two-day workshop that encompasses complex ecological systems thinking. We’ll explore how listening and observing soil, plants and animals can guide us in identifying indicators of health, what it takes to bring vibrant life back to land, and where to start in taking action. We’ll also learn about the relationship of minerals to soil microbiology and aboveground function for regenerating healthy ecosystems.

Educate, Expand & Empower Yourself
There is a lot that goes into understanding soils… they are complex, with so many variables. It’s no wonder so many producers never dig holes, or worse, spend thousands of dollars to apply unnecessary products or hire someone else to assess the health of their soil.
If you’ve been unsure about current on-farm/ranch practices and are looking to make sense of the endless recommendations that may not “add up,” these courses will give you the foundations to support you in making informed decisions about the health of your soil.
