Establishing No-till Production
August 16 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFREE
MOFGA’s Farm Training Project (FTP) workshops are designed for apprentices, Journeypeople, farmworkers and other beginning farmers. They follow an informal format including a farm tour and conversation on the topic of the day. All events are free but require registration.
Join Caleb Goossen, MOFGA’s crop specialist, and Tiny Roots Organic Farm in Litchfield, ME, for a discussion on establishing a no-till production system. We will discuss starting a no-till production farm on a small scale, exploring the whys, the hows and the “now whats”. Tiny Roots Organic Farm is a mixed vegetable and microgreens farm that uses no-till production methods to focus on soil health and increased biodiversity. They offer fresh, local produce to their customers through farmers markets, CSA and wholesale.
For questions call 207-568-4142 or email MOFGA’s Beginning Farmer Program Specialist, Bo Dennis, at [email protected].
This workshop is eligible for travel reimbursement. At the end of the Farm Training Project calendar, a mileage reimbursement form will be sent to all participants.
