Tour Flywheel Farm, a diversified fruit and vegetable farm in Woodbury, and learn from farmers Justin Cote and Ansel Ploog’s experiments building biodiversity and improving soil health.
These practices include living pathways of clover between permanent beds, selective mowing for habitat preservation, intercropping annual crops together, perennial plantings, mulching with wood chips and straw, and other low-impact growing methods. During this tour-based workshop, they will share management techniques, tools, and how to stay adaptive while balancing soil health and productivity goals. This workshop will appeal to growers of any size looking to improve the health of their soil.
Presenters: Ansel Ploog and Justin Cote
