Come check out Atlas Farm’s 3 acre experiment with strip-tilled winter squash in a perennial clover living mulch, and living clover/rye pathways in five acres of tomatoes. We’ll look at a no-till drill, strip-till equipment, and strip-cultivation equipment. Atlas Farms’ trials have implications for tillage reduction and soil health for conventional and organic growers at all scales. Following the talk and tour, there will be a light dinner at 6 PM. We hope to see you there!

This event is co-sponsored by CISA, Momentum Ag, the Hampden-Hampshire Conservation District, and UMass.

  • Date: Thursday, July 25th, 4-6pm
