A Soil Food Web Talk by Kevin Stitt

Permaculture is….a design priority that moves us towards a sustainable planet

  • Ethical –functional/ecological economy not consumption/production economy
  • Earth care, earth repair, earth restoration, people restoration
  • Sensible
  • Practical
  • Beneficial to the global environment

 

A Soil Food Web Talk by Kevin Stitt

January 28, 2014 Meeting of SLO Permaculture Guild

SLO Grange, 2880 Broad St, San Luis Obispo

6 PM potluck meal and conversation; Kevin’s talk starts at 7 PM;

 

How do you change unwanted soil compaction through the use of the soil foodweb and plants?

Why the "right amount of nutrients delivered at just the right time with no leaching" can occur in a healthy soil foodweb/plant relationship?

Can a healthy soil foodweb/plant relationship really self-maintain harmony until a disturbance occurs?

Of all the benefits that the Soil Foodweb offers, conserving water use by increasing the water holding capacity of the soil is critically important and a very timely topic for SLO County. Roots are the rivers of plant life’s systems.

 

Kevin will share his passion for soil fertility of working with plants in their unique soil foodweb towards strengthening the plant’s natural defenses while assisting them in conserving their own water biosphere. He will also describe scientifically-based, soil foodweb enhancement techniques that he is commercially using in farm, orchard and home applications:

  • Stewardship of Building Life in Soil towards Sustainability,
  • Deep-Root Soil Infusion,
  • Plant Health Natural Protection Systems,
  • Vertical Mulching with Vermicompost
  • Soil Water Holding Capacity of Essential Soil™

Kevin has grown his roots for over 20 years in the Green Industry both wide and deep, “N.E. Coast to C.C. Coast”. He personally studied under the deceased Dr. Alex Shigo, Chief Scientist of U.S. Forestry and with Dr. Elaine Ingham, Founder of Soil Foodweb Laboratories.  Extracting lessons from his previous careers; he makes connections in construction - needed/unwanted compaction, as machinist – precision/tolerance and while providing security – harmony/disruption.  Currently Kevin owns Stitt Plant Care and is working on the Caltrans’ Estrella Riverbank Restoration Project for the Upper Salinas-Las Tablas Resource Conservation District in Templeton, CA. Most recently, Kevin accepted the See Canyon Manager position of caring for and maintaining a twenty acres orchard for Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County
