Rodale Institute and Acres USA Organic No-Till Intensive

New in 2020! Organic No-Till Intensive, July 15-16

Learn in a focused, small-group environment from Jeff Moyer, author of the Organic No-Till Farming and CEO of Rodale Institute, and his team of researchers and farmers on the beautiful Rodale Institute farm in Kutztown, Pennsylvania.

With both classroom and in-the-field instruction, this intensive offers a look at the latest tools based on sound biological principles, making it possible to reduce and even eliminate tillage. Field-tested over many seasons, these methods will make cover crops a source of fertility and a tool for weed management in your operation.
