About the Webinar
Dr. Susan Andrews will provide an overview of NRCS' Soil Health Initiative and then present the Intermediate Disturbance Hypothesis to explain why organic practices can be part of this effort. Drs. Michelle Wander and Carmen Ugarte will review the NRCS enrollment tool for the Conservation Stewardship Program and discuss how well organic practices perform when evaluated by this tool. The intended audience includes NRCS staff, conservationists, organic certifiers, educators, and farmers who are interested in strengthening their understanding of the theory behind stewardship practices.
