Farm Tour & Cover Crop Workshop with Greg Swartz 

  • Jun 30
  • @ 2:00pm

 

Sunday, June 30 at 2pm  FREE   

Join farmer Greg Swartz of Willow Wisp Organic Farm for a farm tour and workshop on cover crops.“As farmers, we take the long view that while growing food, we should always be improving our soil, increasing the farm’s biodiversity (above ground and below), and contributing to our community. We do this by using cover crops, crop rotation, and creating insect and wildlife habitat.”  Greg Swartz leads overall operations on Willow Wisp Organic Farm. He has been farming in the Upper Delaware River Valley since 2000. After seven years as an apprentice on local farms including Wild Roots Farm, Apple Pond Farm, and Gorzynski Ornery Farm, he and Tannis Kowalchuk bought their first farm and hasn’t slept much since. In 2015 Willow Wisp Organic Farm moved 5 miles down the road to the banks of the Delaware River. This new farm has allowed a tripling in production. Greg’s goals are to grow high-quality food, improve the farm ecosystem, and employ as many people as possible to show that farming can be and should be the key to economic development in our region. Food and refreshments provided.
