Cover Cropping Workshop with Karin Lindquist

Jan 28th and Feb 4th from 1pm to 3pm

Cover crops are a powerful tool for improving soil health! They can help address agronomic challenges like droughty or waterlogged soils, erosion, and poor soil structure, as well as improve fertility and interrupt pest and disease cycles.

There’s a lot of info out there to wade through and the choices can get overwhelming. This training will use mentor-led and farmer-to-farmer discussions to take out some of the guesswork that comes with trying something new.
