This field day will focus on weed control strategies that work for certified organic vegetable farmers. We will start off with how to take back your fields from two of the most vicious invaders: thistle and quack grass. We'll also visit a site under low/no-till production—a potential solution for controlling weeds without destroying your soil. Last, we'll demonstrate different mechanical weeding tools, including a flame weeder, and discuss the pros and cons of each.

Registration is required and the cost is $20. To register and find out about scholarships and multi-class discounts, e-mail Laura or call 651-433-3676.
