Our Focus: Delivering an Immediate ROI
Gary Zimmer and Leilani Zimmer-Durand, owners and operators of the Otter Creek Organic Farm, founders of Zimmer Ag and authors of The Biological Farmer, will lead the practical, farmer-driven workshops that fill this two-day educational intensive. You will return to your farm and be able to apply tactics immediately around:
- balancing soil through natural inputs and systems,
- storing carbon with cover crops,
- tilling smartly to ensure nutrient availability,
- managing water efficiently,
- planting strategic companion crops,
- implementing permaculture tactics, and
- building cooperation with neighbors.
Focus: Cover Crops & Short Rotations
One thing you will find on the Otter Creek Organic Farm: cover crops, short rotations and a purpose for every field. As you walk the properties and experience hands-on learning, Gary and Leilani will talk about the role of different types of cover crops, the practical aspects of managing cover crops in your crop rotation, and dig into the soil to look at some of the improvements brought about by adding a diversity of cover crops.
You’ll learn even more at the event! Check out our informative sessions here.
