The Western Canada Conference on Soil Health and the Western Canadian Grazing Conference were combined into a 3-day event in 2017. A number of Alberta applied research and forage associations organize and present these popular events with help from partners in industry and government. The conferences in 2015 and 2017 featured, among other top researchers and soil health practitioners, Gabe Brown of Bismarck, North Dakota.

The ‘Healthy Soil, Healthy Region’ Workshop is a region-wide approach to bring together agricultural
professionals and producers from Washington, Oregon, and Idaho for a 3-day workshop to improve
awareness of existing, new, and evolving regional soil health practices and assessment methods. The
workshop will provide hands-on training on soil health practices, improve understanding of the practical
barriers producers face when implementing soil health practices, and increase familiarity with tools that
can be used by producers to make decisions related to soil health. We will also strive to get the various
groups working on soil health in the region on the same page regarding sampling protocols, method
selection, and the current state of the science.
The Western Colorado Soil Health Conference is designed to educate producers, government officials, and the broad community about ways to increase organic matter in, and the health of, our soils through cover crops, green manure, grazing, compost, entomology, and other sustainable practices. These practices are showing long term benefits in improved quality and cost of production.
