The event will feature Chatfield farmer Rod Nelson. He has been no-till farming for the past 40 years and has recently incorporated cover crops into his system. This spring, Nelson knifed in manure and no-tilled corn into standing rye with success and will share his learning experiences and techniques during his presentation.

This event will also include small group discussions and time for questions and answers. While we will miss seeing people in person, the event is going to be engaging and interactive. Contact LSP’s Shona Snater at ssnater@landstewardshipproject.org with any questions or for help registering.
