Spending a Day with Nettle
Please join us at North Slope Farm for an afternoon with Nettle. This luscious plant, often feared and avoided, has everything you could wish in an herb and we as advocates, want you to get to know her and her nourishing, funny, crazy sides. We will hang out with her outside, pick and prepare yummy stuff and learn how to care for her and preserve her.
Come hear our stories and share yours. Bring a basket or bag, clippers, gloves(are optional!!- nettle does have a sting), a cup for tea or soup, a plate and spoon, a few pint canning jars and some apple cider vinegar.
Sunday, April 8, 2018 – 1-3:30 pm $35

Planting - (Comments Off on Favorable Furrow at North Slope Farm)
Favorable Furrows at North Slope Farm..
An ecological focus directs us to be conscious of Life around us. As a Farmer, you learn about the irony of constantly battling nature, to yield a profitable crop…To read more about Todd Haldeman’s experience with Favorable Furrows – Click Here.
Discussion, Observation and Investigation has popularized the awareness of Vital and Dynamic Soil Biota, Life, Ecology.
As Farmers, we are stimulated by the Concept that to Disturb Soil, is to Destroy Life and Ecology..
This is Not a New Awareness.. but, like more people, than ever, now have an awareness of Organic (Agricultural Management) Practices.. Our communities are quickly adopting the awareness that Soil is Alive – and that Life has profound and unique Purpose(s)!
No-Till and Minimal Tillage Techniques, are concepts, that refer to, reducing the mechanical disruption of Soil Ecology, such that the Living Soil, can Maximize its Potential. The Details of these techniques relate to specific Farmers, Farms and Resources.
At North Slope Farm, we are fine tuning our Minimal Tillage Techniques, including, but not limited to:
Favorable Furrows, in short;
Foster Multi Species Cover Cropped Farmland..
To Plant “Field Beds”, Rip a Furrow,
Fill Furrow with Compost and Amendments Desired,
Shallow Churn the Rippings (from Furrowing) and mounded Compost, to yield uniform surface,
Plant, or utilize shallow cultivation techniques to maintain “stale seedbed”, until Planting.
