Agricultural Skills Course 6: Low-Till, Intensive Farming

Class 6: Low-Till, Intensive Farming with Leo Chapman, Chapman Family Farm

See a small, diversified farm in action. Leo will introduce us to a farm system that integrates animals into a low-till fruit and vegetable system that includes Hugelkulter, swales, and perennials.  If it can be grown in Nevada County, Leo has grown it!  Leo co-founded the Living Lands Agrarian Network and as a true local agricultural hero, has much wisdom to offer.

Here’s what people are saying about Ag Skills:

“A truly fantastic learning experience made all the more impressive considering the obstacles COVID 19 and the fires present to any classroom. Sierra Harvest goes above and beyond to ensure safety; all present are masked-up, classes take place outdoors, all are reminded of the importance of practicing social distancing, N-95 masks were distributed to all given smoky air quality. I’ve signed up for every class I can get my hands on and have been wildly impressed and informed with each. Thank you, Cam and the entire Sierra Harvest team for your brilliant work!”

Note: Current COVID-19 protocols at Ag Skills classes.
