In addition to the other sessions I posted separately, I attended several other sessions at NToTP 2019 and took less detailed notes. Here are the notes I have:
"The Carbon Key: Soil Biology Builds Resilience in Regenerative Systems" was a talk by Dr. Kris Nichols at the No-Till on the Plains conference in Wichita in January 2019. Here are my notes:
Jim Schalles gave a standing-room-only lecture on Natural Building at City Sprouts on January 12. Here are my notes:
I attended the 10th annual storm water tour on September 20, 2018. Most of the people on the bus were professionals in the field, either civil engineers or industry reps. Here are my photos from the tour.
August 30 to September 3, 2018, I attended the second Indigenous Wisdom and Permaculture Skills Convergence (IWPSC) at the Oglala Lakota Cultural & Economic Revitalization Initiative (OLCERI) on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota. It was a very eye- and heart-opening experience, and it's taken a while for me to wrap my head around it. Here are my notes from the sessions, with some commentary.
Author's note: It's generally accepted that the reason aerobic microbes weren't around to prevent the Great Oxygenation Event is because they hadn't evolved yet. It's very convenient that they evolved just in the nick of time to save all life on earth from going extinct. But I got to thinking, what if they had evolved earlier, and they just weren't invited to the party? Then the story starts to seem very familiar...
