Saturday Session I
With climate change, we’re challenged to sequester carbon, retain soil and soil moisture, and provide habitat for animals, all while growing food, fuel, timber, marketable crops, and medicinal products. Learn how farmers in Belize have transformed marginal fields to meet these goals using a combination of woody crops and herbaceous perennials in successional growth patterns.
Christopher Nesbitt has been an organic farmer in Belize since 1988. Since that time, he has been working on ways to biologically remediate the farm’s damaged landscapes by using models that mimic succession patterns of growth in damaged land.
