Building Biodiversity into Vegetable Production

Come tour Frith Farm and learn strategies to increase biodiversity in the context of commercial vegetable production. Diversity and abundance of life are nature’s answer to soil, plant, and human health. We will focus on how to use mulches, interplantings, and perennial plantings to increase natural resistance to pests and disease and to feed the life that feeds us.

Daniel owns and manages Frith Farm in Scarborough, Maine where he has practiced commercial no-till growing since 2010. He is the author of the book, The No-Till Organic Vegetable Farm: How to Start and Run a Profitable Market Garden That Builds Health in Soil, Crops, and Communities.
