If you are interested in soil health and cover cropping systems, you will want to attend the 2018 Virginia Farm to Table Conference scheduled for December 5 and 6 at Blue Ridge Community College in Weyers Cave. Noted speakers on soil and health include Dr. David Montgomery and Anne Bikle of Dig2Grow and authors of Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations, The Hidden Half of Nature: The Microbial Roots of Life and Health, and Growing A Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life.
Additionally, Mark Dempsey of Carolina Farm Stewardship Association and Patryk Battle of Living Web Farms — farmers from the Carolinas — will share how they get creative with cover crops, and other fertility and weed management systems. So whether you are interested in Small Scale, Low-till Organic & Sustainable Vegetable Systems or Stepping it Up with Cover Crops in Large-scale Commodity Crop Systems, you will want to take your seat and place at the Virginia Farm to Table Conference!
