This webinar is part of the Ignatius Farm New Farmer Training Program – a collaboration between Ignatius Jesuit Centre, EFAO, Everdale and the National Farmers Union – Ontario.

Intercropping is a way to increase on-farm biodiversity and can provide a range of benefits. At the same time, it increases complexity and can create challenges, which necessitates pro-active management.  Wondering how you can intercrop? Join Kristine Hammel from Persephone Market Garden to learn how intercropping is essential to her growing and some principles that can help you increase agro-biodiversity in your farming. And yes, there will be a chart of companion plants to get you started. A recording of this webinar will be available.

Speaker: Kristine Hammel, Persephone Market Garden
