Researchers, policymakers, and industry leaders from around the world came together in Covington, Kentucky at the International Grasslands Congress this past May to discuss the latest developments in grassland science, management, and policy. This was the first time the Congress was held in the United States since 1981.
Greenacres Foundation was thrilled to welcome Congress attendees to our Indian Hill and Brown County locations to share our grassland restoration practices which are based on the principles of generative agriculture. These principles are designed to promote biodiversity, improve soil health, and help develop more sustainable farming methods. Greenacres’ approach emphasizes the importance of working with natural systems and closely mimics the bison grazing ecosystems. These ecosystems naturally sequestered carbon for thousands of years and built extremely fertile soil which helped make the United States the agricultural powerhouse it is today.
“Our goal is to help restore degraded grasslands and create thriving ecosystems that sequester carbon to benefit both people and the environment. Having experts from around the world see the important work that our community is doing in the field is an important step in making Ohio and Kentucky a leader in this space.”
Carter Randolph, Greenacres President
