Big Turn-Out for Cover Crops Workshop

With spring gardening and farm preparation and planting in full swing, around 40 area producers attended Richard Boylan's "Cover Crops for Vegetable Growers" workshop on May 3. Richard covered rotation plans, soil management, and methods to help small farms sustain harvests despite the unpredictable weather here in the high country. Participants included growers from the New River Organic Growers and local gardeners. The workshop was an updated version of a Cover Cropping workshop he presented at the 2010 Organic Growers School in Asheville earlier this year.
