Take some time to chat with fellow farmers and farm advisors about tillage reduction and soil health in an open, roundtable environment. The Monthly Min-Till Farmer Call will be the first Monday of each month. No pre-registration required, this will be a free-form space with minimal moderation & with the goal of farmers being able to pose questions to each other and share resources, suggestions, and ideas about tillage reduction.
Have you been considering starting, or transitioning to, a no-till farm? Join us at Gaining Ground Farm in Concord, MA to learn small-scale, high-yield methods for crop production using methods that minimize soil disturbance and maximize soil health. We will discuss what we love and don’t love about the tools we use: like planting with the paper pot transplanter, using the Johnny’s tilther for bed prep, the BSC power harrow, the broadfork, our cultivation tools, and greens harvester. Farm manager Anna Kelchlin will lead an interactive field walk with observations and input from guest presenter Yoko Takemura of Assawaga Farm in Putnam, CT.
