Mike and Will Brownback: Steps to Growing High-Quality Produce While Increasing Organic Matter
This workshop will focus on a systems approach to running an intensive vegetable farm with an emphasis on soil improvement, covering topics such as using the Albrecht method for balancing nutrients; selecting appropriate cover crops combined with a realistic approach to on-farm composting for the vegetable farmer and the intensive use of cover crops, foliar feeding and proactive pest control. The Brownbacks farm 100 acres of certified organic produce in central Pennsylvania and market their production through a CSA, farmers’ markets and direct marketing to a retailer.
