Growing Ideas: Regenerative Agriculture Meets Clayfield Farm Online
What are your gardening plans this year? Join our spring online series, "Growing Ideas: Inspiration from Novel Area Gardens," featuring local garden innovators, and learn about new ideas happening here on the Blue Hill Peninsula. Want to build a thriving backyard ecosystem? Include beautiful native plants in your borders? Grow nutrient-packed vegetables and fruits in the healthiest Maine soil ever? Or find fun opportunities to learn or volunteer with other gardeners, and share your skills and bounty with the community? This series highlights some of the exciting garden trends that are happening right here, right now, and offers practical ideas for every gardener.
On Thursday, April 15 at 7 PM, the program will be "Regenerative Agriculture Meets Clayfield Farm." Coastal Maine is stunningly beautiful, but not known for its deep, rich topsoil. Regenerative/No-Till farming and gardening can bring new life to the old soils here. Join farmer David Noriega and learn the history of regenerative methods, what changes they bring to modern agriculture, why no-tillage practices are key to healthy soil, the importance of diverse growing systems to the health of the planet, and what strategies you might implement to improve your own gardens. David will answer your questions, and offer tips on how to get started using regenerative practices from the ground up!
David Noriega and his family have come to East Blue Hill as successors to local organic farmers, Phil Norris and Deborah Wiggs at Clayfield Farm. David has been farming for eight years, practicing regenerative, No-Till farming in Maine, and is excited to share some the benefits it has to offer, and how it can be an integral part of both improving your garden and healing the planet.
