Cover-cropping and amending soil is a common practice in sustainable agriculture. We will be constructing test plots to measure Bio Char and Compost vs Agricultural Lime in our cover cropping system.

Actively participate by tilling-in soil amendments, hand-sewing vetch/rye/pea/buckwheat seed mix, and spreading a mulch of reed canary grass.
