Ft. Payne, AL (September 11, 2018) — They are experts at turning dirt into soil.
Now, Ray Archuleta, Dave Brandt, Gabe Brown and Allen Williams, Ph.D. have teamed up to help other producers practically and successfully apply soil health-focused, regenerative agriculture systems through their new venture, Soil Health Consultants, LLC. The firm’s four founders are widely considered to be among the most preeminent pioneers, innovators and advocates in today’s soil health and regenerative agricultural movement.
“By regenerating our soil, we know we can regenerate our farms, our communities, our nation and our futures,” said Gabe Brown. “Through practical, on-farm innovation, experimentation and application, our goal is to help usher in a new era of regenerative agriculture that will result in healthier, nutrient-dense food and more productive, profitable and resilient farms.”
SHC’s on-farm consulting work focuses on integrating ecological principles (bio-mimicry) that emulate nature’s time-tested design—soil health principles that can be applied practically and profitably in any farming operation.
The firm recently established the Soil Health Academy, an advanced, hands-on source of training for those who want to restore the health and function of our living and life-giving soil. Soil Health Academy is offered throughout North America as a three-day, on-farm intensive course and also on-line through the SHA Virtual Academy.
“There is no more important pursuit than to help farmers, conservationists and consumers better understand and improve the health and function of our soil,” Brown said. “And regardless of where you farm, if you have soil, regenerative agriculture can work for you.”
