Innovation on a Vegetable Farm
Saturday September 28 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Jeff Boesch and Leslie Moskovits have been farming together for 15 years – 10 of which at Cedar Down Farm where they grow 6 acres of certified organic vegetables for year-round CSAs. Join Jeff and Leslie for a close look at the ins and outs of what has made this farm successful for 10 years and the innovations that have kept them on the leading edge of ecological agriculture in Ontario.
A passionate tool innovator, Jeff will share some of the tool innovations on the farm, including an electric tractor, and talk about the development of EFAO’s new community building group. They will share some of the soil health practices they employ on the farm and their goals for building continuing to build healthy, productive soils. They will talk about their new irrigation plans, including a recently-dug pond, to adjust to the droughts that are occurring with increased frequency in southern Ontario. Participants will also hear about their experience as farmer-researchers taking part in EFAO’s Lettuce Variety Trial and see the trial in action.
This event qualifies as part of the Soil Health Program.
