Tell Me About It Tuesdays: Regenerative Agriculture

Event Date: November 10th, 2020

Sound Rivers’ monthly virtual science series continues on November 10th, hosted by your Upper Neuse Riverkeeper Matthew Starr. He’ll be talking about regenerative agriculture – what is it, how does it help, and what is a “soil carbon cowboy?” And you can join the discussion from the comfort of your home! RSVP below or email to receive the Zoom link.

Special Guest Dr. Lori J. Unruh Snyder, Associate Professor, NC State University, will be joining Matthew to discuss her focus on on international agriculture and sustainable cropping systems. We can’t wait for another great discussion!

Dr. Unruh Snyder is an Associate Professor at NC State in the Crop & Soil Science Department. In 2012, she was awarded the regional teaching award for North American Teachers of Agriculture. In 2009, she was awarded the International Education Award for New Faculty while at Purdue University and the USDA New Teacher Award from the APLU. She is the innovator behind the CROPVIEW repository and the Feast or Famine simulation, which educates the youth about food security.

For the past 15 years, Dr. Snyder has developed and implemented international study abroad programs with 400 plus students from multiple universities to implement research, service learning, and community outreach.
