About the event

Come learn how Abundance Farm's no-till practices are integral to their mission of building a more resilient community.

Throughout the day we will:

  • Learn how Abundance Farm's no-till, cover crop, and community harvest practices are informed by their ancient Jewish agricultural values
  • Learn how Abundance Farm's community and educational efforts are complemented and supported by no-till practices
  • Learn how Abundance Farm went from a meadow/sod field into a raised-bed, no-till system using all human power
  • Learn about Abundance Farm's experiments with tarps, permanent beds, perennial and living cover crop, and intercropping

We will also:

  • Enjoy lunch on the farm and mingle with other farmers
  • Learn more about Assawaga Farm’s intense vegetable production and field trials
  • Participate in a hands-on demonstration of various no-till tools
  • Learn several methods to assess soil health onsite with simple and inexpensive tools

This event is supported by an Agricultural Soil Health grant from the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR) in partnership with American Farmland Trust.
