Cultivation Demonstrations

Cultivation Demonstrations


Hartland, VT July 9th, 2016

This is a workshop on how to create a cropping and cultivation systems on a horse powered farm, with demonstrations, consultation, and the opportunity for hand on practice. We’ll demonstrate the New 4 McCormick-Deering cultivator—which includes using the tool to mark rows, plant, hill, and cultivate. We can also say that various strategies for organic weed control will be discussed and single horse cultivation with a walk-behind cultivator will be demonstrated. $35 for the full demo-day and $35 extra for hands-on practice with a teamster. Facilitator: Stephen Leslie
