Potluck to follow
@ Philia Farm
134 Miller Rd, Johnstown, NY 12095
Tour research plots examining various tillage and no-till strategies supplemented by tarp usage for weed control and nitrogen retention. Early plots with rye were planted to cabbage, and later plots with rye and vetch were planted to winter squash. You will also see how tarps are being used on the small-scale (one-acre) garden level to prepare multiple beds for weed-free direct seeding of crops, and see a field being prepared for vegetable crops with no-till drilled cover crop successions.
Event is made possible through generous support of the NY Farm Viability Institute.
