What is cover cropping and green manure?  This workshop will answer these questions and cover why we use them in our crop rotations. You will learn how this practice can help increase soil health, crop health, and water retention. 

This event is offered as part of the Ignatius Farm New Farmer Training Program. Educational content is geared toward new farmers, but is open to all farmers who might be curious about a certain topic, wishing to expand their farming knowledge, or in need a refresh.

Facilitator: Anne Verhallen, Soil Management Specialist (Horticultural Crops), Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs
