Join the University of Illinois Extension and Jo Daviess Soil and Water Health Coalition for an program entitled "The Economics of Soil Health.” This event, will feature Extension Specialists and experienced producers discussing the costs and benefits of regenerative agriculture in terms of dollars annually, but also and more importantly, in terms of the intangible and long term benefits (organic matter, infiltration, reduced erosion, etc.) and how they support profits over time. 

This free program will be offered at the Elizabeth Community Building on December 8 from 9AM-3PM and will include a lunch. This event will have limited capacity so register now to reserve your spot (and your lunch!) for the event.

The Jo Daviess County Soil and Water Health Coalition was created to support a farmer-led conversation. The coalition is an affiliation of interested individuals leading the effort to encourage education, experimentation, and workable solutions that improve soil health and water quality in a way that enhances profitable agriculture.
