Exploring Practices & Policies for Improving Soil Health Series: Diversified Livestock Focus (Brattleboro)
Tuesday, September 17, 2019 - 3:00pm to 6:30pm
Join Ashlyn & Abraham McClurg of Rebop Farm, a highly diversified, grass-based livestock farm in Brattleboro, as they share techniques they have used to improve the health of their soils and the productivity of their pastures. Some of the strategies discussed will include frost seeded perennials, interseeded annual cover crops, poultry tractors, and intensive rotational grazing.
Stick around after the technical portion of the workshop for pizza from NOFA-VT’s mobile pizza oven and a discussion of how changes in policy and other tools can help to expand the use of good soil health practices on Vermont’s farms.
NOFA-VT’s new Executive Director Grace Oedel will also be at this event! Meet and learn more about Grace and what she brings to the organization.
This workshop is part of a 3-part series focusing on soil health solutions for commercial farmers, and opportunities to create meaningful policy change to expand healthy soils practices in Vermont.
