Soil Science at the Veggie Field

We work with a clay based soil so we're at some advantages cause clay holds lots of nutrients for plants, but it's also a soil that needs constant regular attention. That's what the development season is all about: building up our soil so it is healthy and ready for our produce plants in the fall.

Amending the soil is an on-going process of restoring and improving the nutrient balance of the field for more than just the next growing season but the one after that and the one after that. It's a sustainability strategy and that makes it a priority; so, look for our smaller farm care events over the next several months to help rebuild our soil!
