Exploring Practices & Policies for Improving Soil Health Series: Mixed Vegetable & Cut Flower Focus

October 1 @ 3:00 pm - 6:30 pm

October 1, 2019
Middlebury, Vermont

This workshop is part of a three-part series focusing on soil health solutions for commercial farmers, and opportunities to create meaningful policy change to expand healthy soils practices in Vermont. Join Spencer and Jennifer Blackwell of Elmer Farm, a certified organic mixed vegetable and flower farm, as they share techniques they have used to improve the health and fertility of their soils, along with the results of those efforts. Some of the strategies discussed will include reduced tillage, installing a permanent bed system, increasing their use of multispecies cover crops, reduced amendments, and the use of more targeted, live mulches.
