Cover Crops for Resilient Organic Farms, from the Soil Up

Tuesday, November 27, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM   

Klaas and Mary-Howell bring a unique combination of the theoretical and practical to every session they lead. In this workshop, the Martens' will talk about strategies for cover cropping in organic rotations. They will explain how they target cover crops for effective weed control and pest management; what different species accomplish; how cover crops can also be used as forage crops, and some of the benefits cover crops provide in longer rotations.
