Organic Strawberry Production

Sunday, June 9 | 12:00PM - 2:00PM | South Kingstown, RI | directions | website

Come learn successful strategies in organic strawberry production at Brandon Family Farm. Strawberries are proven to be both a profitable and beneficial crop on small acreage Rhode Island farms because they fit well into vegetable rotations, especially when planted using plastic-culture and can allow for intensive rotations. Farm owner, Alby Brandon, will discuss commercial organic production including planting strategies, fertility, pest management, day neutrals (full season strawberries) and rotation. Please arrive a few minutes early.
Registraion is free for this on-farm workshop.

Hosted by Northeast Organic Farming Association of Rhode Island at the Brandon Family Farm: 592 Fairgrounds Road, South Kingstown, RI.

Using Livestock to Clear Land

Wednesday, June 19 | 6:00PM - 8:00PM | Exeter, RI | directions | website

Join us as we learn techniques on clearing land with the help of livestock. The use of livestock to clear land eradicates weeds and invasive species and prevents individuals from having to use heavy machinery or chemicals to do so. Ben and Rachael of Wild Harmony will discuss how each species plays a role in the clearing of the land and the benefits of utilizing livestock instead of other methods.
Event is Free.

Hosted by Northeast Organic Farming Association of Rhode Island at the Wild Harmony Farm: 366 Victory Highway, Exeter, RI.
