Saturday I – 8:30 a.m.
Discover how cover crops can provide the key to unlocking your soil’s potential. This workshop will cover rotation and fertility designs based on soil-building crops with the additional benefits of drought proofing you farm and reducing weed pressure and dependence on tillage. We will cover the basics of catch crops, cover crops, living mulches, and green manures, crop selection, timing, planting, and incorporation.
