This workshop is part of a three-part series from NOFA Vermont, focusing on soil health solutions for commercial farmers and opportunities to create meaningful policy change to expand healthy soils practices in Vermont. Join Ashlyn and Abraham McClurg of Rebop Farm, a highly diversified, grass-based livestock farm in Brattleboro, as they share techniques they have used to improve the health of their soils and the productivity of their pastures. Some of the strategies discussed will include frost seeded perennials, interseeded annual cover crops, poultry tractors, and intensive rotational grazing.
