During this NOFA Massachusetts afternoon in-field workshop, Mike Raymond at First Light Farm will discuss his nine years of experience working to enhance soil biology on his seven acres of sandy soils. Mike will discuss how and why he now uses occultation, a technique that uses black tarps to kill and quickly decompose plant matter, to prepare his beds after cover or cash crops. All participants will also get to participate in an occultation demo. Mike will also discuss which cover crop mixes he uses in his crop rotation and which implements have been most successful in his effort to minimize soil disturbance.
