Regeneration Belize Announces
A Tropical Agriculture Conference
Regeneration Belize and Regeneration International invite the farmers of Belize to the conference to be held at the National Agriculture and Trade Show (NATS) grounds, Belmopan, 13th-15th November 2018. This is not a traditional expo-type fair, although major sponsors will have displays and products available. The event is an educational opportunity for all interested farmers to come and hear successful tropical farmers share their experiences with regenerative methods. Come learn how to have healthy plants that produce nutrient-dense food even in times of extreme weather.
Using regenerative systems have shown to help growers make more money.
