Event Description

Farmer Stephen Chamberlain, NRCS Soil Conservationist Carla Fenner, and NOFA-VT Vegetable and Fruit Advisor Wendy Sue Harper will discuss the need to test soils annually, and how to use soil tests to determine your need for organic fertilizers. We will demonstrate how a cover crop and vegetable rotation system can control weeds and increase organic matter without added manure or compost. We will discuss how to choose a site for vegetable production. Dutchess Farm grows 4 acres of produce using organic practices, selling to a 100-member CSA, the Rutland Farmer's Market, and the Rutland Co-op.
