The 2022 Soil Not Oil Conference will be held September 17th in Petaluma, CA at Tara Firma Farms with talks throughout the day and will end with a dance in the barn with local Bay area band Makuru.

Farmers, environmental activists, and farmworker organizations came together to found the Soil Not Oil Conference in 2015. Our main focus is to educate about soil solutions to climate change by highlighting the importance of agro-ecological and Organic farming practices, as well as addressing and supporting environmental justice at all levels. The annual Soil Not Oil Conferences have had 100’s of speakers and the information was broadcast in Spanish and English on radio and live video to hundreds of thousands of people around the globe. Past conference speakers have included Dr. Vandana Shiva, Rattan Lal, Wenonah Hauter, Miguel Altieri, Andrew Kimbrell, Starhawk, John Jeavons, Anuradha Mittal, Ann Lopez, Elizabeth and Paul kaiser among hundreds more. Soil Not Oil is where policy makers, ag-vocates, farmers, academics, activists and farmer networks come and share their experiences and present solutions that include available tools, funding and cutting edge ideas to power change.
