Farming with Nature: Improving Soil Health on Vegetable Farms

Wednesday, November 5, 2014 - 9:30am to 3:30pm
This workshop, designed to benefit farmers who grow vegetables, fruit and field crops, will focus on the continued capacity of the soil to function as a vital living system that sustains plant, animal and human health. Healthy soils rich in organic matter drain better, have greater disease resistance, and better water holding capacity in times of drought. Healthy soils are important to your bottom line!
