Dirt Talk Farm Walk: Low Till for Small Farms
Join us at Wintercreek Farm in Poulsbo on September 13th from 4pm  6pm for our next Dirt Talk Farm Walk all about Low-till farming practices. Farmer Robin Bodony will be opening up the farm to share her experience and expertise with no-till / low-till farming practices in a market farm setting. We will have Kitsap Conservation District partners on hand as well as our Regional IPM Specialist, Laurel Mouton, to discuss pest pressures in a low-till/no-till situation. Specific topics to be discussed include:

   - No-till and low-till tools and techniques for preparing beds for planting in a market garden setting
   - Using low tillage in concert with other soil health promoting strategies to produce quality crops (cover crops, compost and mulches, mineral balancing, inter-planting)
   - Challenges vs. benefits of low-tillage systems

Dirt Talk Farm Walks provide farmer-to-farmer education to promote the exchange of ideas and innovations related to sustainable and organic farming in our region. This farm walk is open to all beginning and current farmers, not to the general public.

More about Wintercreek Farm:

Wintercreek uses low tillage, cover cropping, compost, mulching and remineralization practices aimed at promoting soil health and growing the best food possible. We serve our community through the Poulsbo Farmers Market, local food banks, the online local food marketplace Kitsap Fresh, as well as a handful of restaurants.
