No Till, No Problem – Managing Soil Health at Rose Hill Farm

August 3 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$15

Soil management on commercial produce farms tends to entail some combination of tillage, cultivation, herbicides, plastic mulch, and fertilizer. A new generation of farmers are inventing ecological approaches that reduce or eliminate these inputs and their negative consequences. While most folks have heard about no-till farming and soil health by now, there is less clarity about the scalability, efficiency, and profitability of these concepts within the context of local food systems. This Rural Action workshop is hosted by Rose Hill Farm, a 125-acre family farm and wildlife habitat that currently grows about 10 acres of summer produce and 10 acres of willow coppice.
