I worked in AGRICULTURE in UKRAINE for 24 years but with Kremlin's Aggression towards UKRAINE, I no longer felt comfortable living & working within 120 miles of Russian military tanks. American citizens can be viewed as potential hostage dollars. On June 16th, 2021 I relocated to Montrose.

On Wednesday, July 28th I had the opportunity to participate in the “Brown Bag Lunch & Learn“ event held at the Event Center at the Montrose County Fair. The topic of “Improving Soil through SOIL HEALTH” was presented by the Shavano Conservation District. Conservation Agriculture was initially introduced in the Montrose area between the years of 1999-2002. Integrating on-Farm practices with applied research over the past two decades has contributed to formation of the key principles of Conservation Agriculture as they are being incorporated today on a practical basis in “The Valley”: 1. Minimize Soil Disturbance 2. Maintain Living Roots 3. Plant Diversity 4. Maximize Ground Cover 5. Integrate Livestock.
Following the presentation, participants of the “Brown Bag Lunch & Learn” event were provided with a 75 page color ”SOIL HEALTH Resource Guide” prepared by Green Cover Seed, headquartered in Bladen, Nebraska. The Resource Guide is available to the public at no charge by going to www.greencoverseed.com/SHRG
