No-Till: Gardening Without Disturbance

June 29 @ 5:30 pm 7:00 pm

As we learn about the significance of soil life we are finding out that disturbing the soil is no longer recommended but how do we learn to transition away from tillage? Cat Buxton will demonstrate some techniques garden-side at the Billings Community Garden and share the exciting science-story behind no-till to help broaden our understanding of how we can create conditions for thriving ecosystems. We’ll discuss how to employ the soil health principles in context to help you make the transition toward less soil disturbance with confidence.

PLEASE NOTE: attendance is limited to 20 people. If you sign up and are unable to attend, please notify the organizer as soon as possible at programs@sustainablewoodstock.org or 802-291-1003
