Join fellow farmers and university specialists at Growing Home’s Les Brown Memorial Farm in La Salle County, Illinois, for an in-depth look at their soil fertility management strategies and practices. Larry O’Toole will discuss his use of cover crops, rotations, tillage and purchased inputs on this 10-acre farm. Growing Home grows certified organic produce at three sites (two in Chicago) for CSA, wholesale and farmers’ market customers. University staff will be on hand to discuss the results of a survey of organic growers and their fertility management, and to help answer questions. Please join us!
