Let's Cultivate a Legacy of Biodiversity

You know by now, farming is more than just putting seeds in the ground and hoping they will grow, and it's definitely more than growing stuff and hoping it will sell.


There is mastery to farming and you're getting a lot of things right: you're likely planning your crops, building your soil, maybe doing some cover crops, and doing some networking and sales.

You know you're putting in big hours, and you see the effort paying off as your soil begins to change, and your crops are starting to get stronger. But it's a lot.

Farming requires grit, tenacity, passion, and grace. You're always learning and wonder how you can be even more efficient, more effective, get better results, mimic nature, and you long to connect with others who are on a similar path.

 

You might find yourself...

struggling to know what will work for you and your land

battling depleted soils and degradation

looking for ways to increase biodiversity and pollinators

It's time to uplevel your farm and work smarter, not harder. The Soil Summit is here for you!

Natalie Forstbauer

Publisher, Heart & Soil Magazine ‚ÄĘ Farmer/Gardener ‚ÄĘ Author ‚ÄĘ Healer ‚ÄĘ TEDx Speaker¬†

Hi, I'm a curious soul who loves to learn and see others thrive while living in harmony with Mother Earth.

I’m passionate about discovering and sharing what makes a farm successful on all levels. It's not just about the food you grow. Success is connecting with your farm, the people you sell to, how you grow your business, how you take care of your soil, ecosystem, and yourself.

My professional roots are in Polarity Therapy and complementary medicine. I grew up on an organic and biodynamic farm, and now own and operate my own organic and biodynamic farm. As Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Heart & Soil Magazine, I now spend my time with my farm, in the thriving Heart & Soil Community, and with my teenage kids. I'm happy to bring you tools to bring your life to the next level. Join us for The Soil Summit, where we’ll learn how to collaborate and co-create as nature intended.
