About the event
Biological farming is an integrated farming system that employs natural biological processes to dramatically improve agricultural yields and reduce farm costs. Bottom line – focus on the health of your soil. Gary Zimmer, author of The Biological Farmer and founder of Midwestern BioAg, will show us how and why he applies biological farming at this property.
Perennial crops, including many fruits and nuts, grow back on their own each year so don’t have to be replanted. In addition to saving time and money, they provide multiple environmental benefits. Patrick Michaels will show us the (pick your own) blueberries and elderberries at Twin Crix Farm, plus other innovative perennial plantings they are establishing.
Evenings Afield is a program of the Lowery Creek Watershed Initiative. One evening per month, we set aside time for learning in the field from experts and each other, socializing with like-minded landowners and residents, and seeing results of management methods on different properties.
