Farm Tour and Cover Cropping Workshop with Wild Earth Farms

Join us for a tour of Wild Earth Farms where we’ll explore the ups and downs of working cover crops into a vegetable rotation. We’ll discuss the farm’s goals for this particular crop and share cover crop stories. Manitoba Agriculture’s Vegetable Extension Specialist will also be on hand to demonstrate and discuss soil sampling and analysis, and we’ll review the results of spring samples taken on the farm. There’ll be plenty of time for networking too! There will be snacks and coffee provided but attendees are also invited to join the organizers after the tour at Pineridge Hollow to eat and talk shop.

This tour is part of a season-long collaboration between Manitoba Organic Alliance, Young Agrarians, Direct Farm Manitoba, and Wild Earth Farms. Following this tour, participants will have the opportunity to gather online in the fall and winter to discuss the progress of the cover cropping pilot, the results from fall soil samples, and what next year might look like. The goal is to create an opportunity for all those interested to learn alongside each other.
