Join us at Freedom Food Farm in Raynham, MA to learn from farm manager Chuck Currie and guest presenter Julie Fine, from Johnnys Seeds, about cover crops and cover crop strategies for no-till farms. Chuck will give us a tour of his farm where he uses holistic and biodynamic farming principles to raise livestock, grow grain and vegetables for their CSA and farmers market. Julie and Chuck will discuss various cover crops and methods to get the most benefit for a variety of conditions and crops. Chuck will then demonstrate how they plant their garlic into a live cover crop of oats and field peas.
We will close out the day by teaching you a few soil health assessment techniques you can use on your farm to track how your management practices are impacting soil biology, structure, root vigor and more.
