Not Just Dirt
Revitalizing Soils With Regenerative Agriculture Principles
by Kevin R. Elmy

Just Not Dirt is a book helping soil caretakers to look at ways of managing regeneratively. That is building soil adding carbon back into the soil ecosystem. The soil health principles are global, they are true around the world. How you do it will have a regional flavour and agronomics. Topics extensively covered are the five soil health principles: keep a vegetative plant growing, increase plant diversity, reduce tillage, reduce use of synthetic inputs, and livestock integration, plus the rationale of why these are important. There are seven producer's stories telling of their regenerative agriculture journey from Western Canada and Western Australia.

Kevin convocated from the Univeristy of Saskatchewan with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. Kevin and his family farmed in eastern Saskatchewan from 1999 to 2021 on the third generation family seed farm where they used regenerative agriculture practices to build their soil, reduce herbicide usage, reduce tillage operations, eliminated using chemical fertilizer, as well as custom grazing beef and bison. He now is consulting and coaching producers to implement regenerative agricultural principles in their operations in North America and Australia.
