The Art of Trench Composting

In this video, Tim Miller, owner of Millberg Farm in Kyle, Texas, shares how he trench composts with woodchips to maintain the fertility of his dryland vegetable and fruit farm while capturing and storing moisture for his crops to grow year-round. Certified Organic since 1989, the 5-acre Millberg Farm is a one-man operation. For 30 years, Tim has provided one of the oldest CSA programs in the state.
