This event is being held as part of the On-Farm Climate Action Fund (OFCAF) program. The goals of the program are to encourage on-farm sequestration of carbon and reduction in greenhouse gases through the implementation of improved nitrogen management, enhanced cover crop adoption, and the normalization of rotational grazing. For more info on the OFCAF program, please visit ofcaf.perennia.ca


Session Description:

Please join Perennia Specialists at Soil Mates Farm for a tailgate meeting to discuss compost, compost analysis, cover crops, veg and berry production, and wireworm management.  Our team will be on hand to answer any production questions, so bring pictures, analysis results and samples.

Do you have a compost source that you find works well for you? Bring a bucket for a compost show and tell!
