NOFA/Mass Soil Health Field Day at Freedom Food Farm

October 18, 2020 All day

This will be a small, in-person Field Day in Raynham, Massachusetts for those who feel comfortable socially distancing and wearing masks, followed by an online version of the event in early winter (see nofamass.org/events for updates). Learn from farmer Chuck Currie about his practices on his livestock and vegetable operation. At Freedom Food Farm, some crops are grown in a no-till market garden and some are grown in the field using more tractor equipment. Topics will include field equipment (including roller crimper and grain drill) market garden practices, tarping, and using animals to clear cover crops and reduce tractor passes. Chuck will demonstrate planting garlic into living green mulch as a strategy for extending days in living cover. Registration fee suggested but full scholarships are available to anyone who wants one. In person event with remote version following. Registration available soon at nofamass.org/events.
