Nicole's experience has spanned diverse sectors from community gardens and horticulture to vermiculture, compost tea production, and diverse multi-species systems. Her company, Integrity Soils delivers coaching and educational programs to producers and organizations spanning over 24 million acres. In 2021 Integrity Soils shifted away from in-person consultancy, to focus on training the next generation of coaches. Her first self-published book titled “For the Love of Soil; Strategies to Regenerate our Food Production Systems,” showcases examples of the tools, principles, and mindset producers adopt to regenerate their soils. When the roads are good, you’ll find her traveling in her Ford 350, horse trailer in tow, working alongside producers to build soil and sink her carbon emissions.
