Cover Crops to Improve Your Soil - canceled

Sat, March 10, 2018, 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Learn more about the ancient practice of cover cropping. Learn to improve your garden’s soil, increase fertility, build water-holding capacity and minimize weeds through the use of a cover crop.

Instructor Emily McGinty of Duke Campus Farms will introduce this system to you, and then she'll review the crop types that are useful to promote specific goals. A recent 12-year study at the University of Illinois confirmed that cover cropping also increases the carbon sequestration in soil – a gain for us all.
