Amy Price Neff
Class to be held at the Copper Beech Farm, 4940 Ashland City Highway, Nashville, TN 37218
Description:Regenerative farming techniques help to enrich soil fertility by increasing biodiversity, which in turn results in food that sustains human health. Meeting at Copper Beech Farm, join Fellowship-trained integrative physician, St Thomas doctor, USN parent and Nurse AMY NEFF, along with USN alumnus HOLT AKERS-CAMPBELL, and Nashville Chew Crew owner ZACH RICHARDSON in this hands-on workshop where participants will explore the Farm's lifecycle, from building soil health to the food on the plate. Participants will take part in harvesting and processing a live sheep, while discussing aspects of how ruminants participate in soil fertility, the concept of carbon capture related to ruminants, and how monoculture farming can impact human health. Participants will then get to take a share of the grass-fed meat home. Age 21 and up.
