NOFA/Mass is beginning 2018 with a series of webinars that focus on skill building for rural and urban beginning farmers, organic farming as a means to creating a just food system and the power of cover crops to increase soil fertility. 

Mark your calendars for these upcoming webinars:

February 27: Soil Testing for Fertility with Derek Christianson of Brix Bounty Farm

At the heart of the organic movement is a continued effort to sustain and regenerate our natural resources.  In this webinar we'll discuss the role of soil testing for making informed fertility decisions on organic farms and gardens.  We'll review the role of soil mineralization and organic matter, including "ENR" (Estimated Nitrogen Release), as you develop a Nitrogen Budget for your fields this year.

March 27: Season Extension with Andrew Mefferd of Growing for Market magazine

April 24: Working with BioChar to Increase Crop Growth with Dr. Emily Cole of Westfield State University

All webinars are free and take place on the last Tuesday of each month from 7pm to 8pm (though note the time change of 7:30 – 8:30 for the February webinar). Find out more about the webinars and view archived videos of past webinars at www.nofamass.org/inspiring-ideas.
