Description

Learn in a focused, small-group environment from Jeff Moyer, author of the Organic No-Till Farming and CEO of Rodale Institute, and his team of researchers and farmers on the beautiful Rodale Institute farm in Kutztown, Pennsylvania.

Attendees will learn an organic farming system that limits tillage, reduces labor, and improves soil structure. With both classroom and in-the-field instruction, this intensive offers a look at the latest tools based on sound biological principles, making it possible to reduce and even eliminate tillage. Field-tested over many seasons, these methods will make cover crops a source of fertility and a tool for weed management in your operation.

Location: The field day and intensive will be held on the Rodale Institute grounds. The address is: 611 Siegfriedale Road,  Kutztown, Pennsylvania,  19530-9320 USA
