Soil Carbon Restoration: Can Biology do the job? ; Jack Kittredge, 8/14/15, www.NOFAmass.org

 

Farmer Mike will introduce the topic, as it relates to his experience and perspective.  We will encourage participants to express their understanding or questions about Carbon Sequestration.  Join the workshop on a walking tour of farming practices at North Slope.

North Slope Farm has served its communities, for over 20 years, with Organic Produce, Herbs and Flowers.  In that time we have found Organic Practices, when actively applied, to build the vigor and viability of our soils.  Cover-cropping, Living Mulches,  reducing soil tillage and fostering wild areas and field strips are integral to a healthy future, and we are glad to share that with you!

We do not condone violence – in any form – though we acknowledge that LIFE is full of Challenges,

To face challenges we need to be strong, to be strong, we need to strive,

Throwing Rotten Tomatoes at each other, though somewhat violent, seems like a reasonably ok way to strive..

  • Rules :

  • 1)Tomatoes should splat..  If they are hard, they should be crushed before throwing, if with Stem – remove stem.

  • 2)Only those who are prepared to be SPLATED, should enter the Tomato Fight Area.

  • 3)No Tomato throwing outside of the tomato fight area.  SERIOUSLY
