Casey Holland starts with a short presentation, followed by conversation with participants.
Casey Holland is a native New Mexican and young farmer committed to effecting positive social change around small-scale regenerative agriculture in the Middle Rio Grande Valley. She strives to make access to nutritious, enriching food more affordable for underprivileged families while providing opportunities for her community to reconnect to the region’s agricultural roots and culture.
Casey currently runs Chispas Farm – a four acre community focused certified organic farm that grows over 120 varieties of heirloom fruits and vegetables, has 60 laying hens and Sable Sanaan milking goats. Casey will share her journey transforming degraded land into a thriving urban farm by focussing on the soil health principles.
