Organic, No-Till Farming at Fauquier Education Farm
Part of the 2019 workshop series for beginning farmers at Fauquier Education Farm.
MAY 30, 2019
Fauquier Education Farm
8428 Meetze Rd. • Warrenton, VA
This workshop is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is not required.
No-Till cultivation techniques can greatly improve soil health and crop yield but most mainstream no-till systems are heavily dependent on using Roundup. Join us as we showcase our no-till demonstrations that are completely free of herbicides. This has become an important cultivation system at the Education Farm because it works! Protect downstream water resources, increase crop yields, build long term soil health and save labor, what’s not to like about that! Plus you can even support pollinators and other beneficial insects. Come see for yourself and we will explain our system in detail.
