A Fall Look at Cover Crops Field Day: Foote Brook Farm

Johnson, VT

Cover crops are becoming more prevalent throughout Vermont on all farm types and sizes. Join the University of Vermont (UVM) Extension — Northwest Crops and Soils Team (NWCS), Champlain Valley Crop, Soil and Pasture Team (CVCSP), and Vegetable and Berry Program — for a week-long look at cover crops! See, learn, and share information on growing successful cover crops in our northern region.

Join us for one (or all four) of our Cover Crop Field Days! Each field day will be offered from 1 to 3 p.m.; light refreshments will be served. The field days are free but please pre-register at: http://vtcovercrop.eventbrite.com.

This field day is being hosted by UVM Extension's Vegetable and Berry Program and Tony Lehouillier and family. Foote Brook Farm is a diversified, certified organic produce farm, with over 45 acres and 145 different varieties of organic produce nestled in the valley of Johnson, VT. The farm uses innovative cover cropping practices to sustain and improve soil health such as interseeding cash crops with living mulches and long-term crop rotations to allow for summer cover crops.
