Climate Adaptive Gardening Series: *additional class* No-till Practices for Soil Health

April 13 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Join local GFN farmer and educator Rose Cherneff at Grow Food Northampton’s Organic Community Garden to learn about all things soil! Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just starting out, this event is perfect for anyone figuring out how to grow food in the time of climate change.

This hands-on workshop will begin with an introduction to soil health – learning how to assess our soil using both our innate senses and carbon-proxy tests, as well as how to interpret chemical soil test results from the UMASS soil lab.  We will then move into learning about no-till gardening techniques to enhance soil health such as planting, tarping, and crimping cover crops, lasagna gardening, and living mulches! This workshop is offered on a sliding scale fee of $0-20. 



And…if you are looking for more in-depth learning about no-till gardening, Rose Cherneff teaches a 9-month long course on climate resilient gardening through their school “Gardening for the Future.” The course covers a range of topics to help gardeners grow food during this time of climate change, and is offered on a sliding scale.  The course began in February, but gardeners are invited to join now!  Learn more and sign up for the course here!
