No-Till 101 for Market & Home Gardening
Monday February 28 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Join Isabelle and Ryan from Field Good Farms for a small-scale no-till primer, just in time for the 2022 growing season! This session is intended to equip you with the confidence to put some no-till principles into practice and will be suitable for market gardeners and home scale growers who are operating on a few acres or less. This session is best suited to those who are relatively new to no-till growing (<3 years experience) and would like to gain suggestions and tips for implementing no-till practices. Isabelle and Ryan will share some general no-till principles and lessons they’ve learned along the way, and then dig into participant questions.
Please fill out this brief survey as soon a possible so that the presenters can tailor the information they share to benefit the greatest number of participants.
