cultivation workshop, OR

posted April 24, 2010

When: Tuesday, April 27, 2010 from 9am to 4pm

Where: Sauvie Island Organics, Sauvie Island, OR

What: Josh Volk, of Slow Hand Farm, will be teaching this intensive which will cover prevention, timing, equipment set up and options, and other strategies for killing weeds in vegetable production systems.   The workshop is aimed at the small to medium sized grower who has minimal or no experience cultivating with tractors and would like to learn more.  We’ll be actually running demonstrations in the field as part of the workshop so come prepared to work outside all day.  If you’d like to bring your own tractor or tools we can spend time helping to tweak your set up. 

 Workshop size will be limited to 10 participants to make sure everyone gets their questions answered and a chance to fully participate.  The date is dependent on relatively dry weather to allow field demonstrations. Lunch is not included so bring your own.

 Josh is a grower and consultant based in Portland, OR.  He has been teaching farming techniques for ten years and writes a regular column on farm tools in Growing for Market.  More information can be found at www.slowhandfarm.com

 Cost per participant: $120
