You can help mitigate the impacts of climate change while growing vitally rich foods. By using simple and earth-friendly materials and techniques like cardboard mulching, occultation, leaf mould, cover cropping, and urine reclamation you can turn marginal land into a highly-productive garden without fancy tools.

In this workshop veteran grower Ricky Baruc, co-creator of Seeds of Solidarity, will provide low cost, easy to implement, minimal maintenance techniques to sequester carbon and build life in the soil.

Join Slow Food Boston and the Northeast Organic Farming Association/ Massachusetts Chapter (NOFA/Mass) in welcoming the bounty of autumn with our North Shore Tour de Farms.

Together we will bicycle about 20 miles across bucolic country roads, visit five diverse farms, including a vegetable farm, a pastured poultry farm, a historic dairy and cheese farm, and a cattle farm. Our last stop will be at an apple orchard where you’ll have the option to pick apples or taste fresh cider donuts (at your own cost).

Those who control the seed system, control the food system. And yet, over the past 50 years, as we’ve lost the majority of our plant breeds and seed companies, we’ve also divorced plants from their place. Cultivars are no longer bred to thrive in a certain bioregion or soil type. Rarely are they developed for drought or flood tolerance. Nor are most seeds bred under organic systems, which means that most organic growers are planting seeds that thrive on soluble synthetic fertility. Most breeds are also far less nutrient-dense now as breeders have focused on yield and appearance while forgetting about nutrition
