Organic Cash Crop – Open House & Field Walk

Mel Morton has been farming for 75 years (as of this summer!) and has a wide range of farming experience. He has been certified organic for the past 15 years. Mel is regularly consulted by farmers across the province, and will happily share his ideas and practices, describing how his soil tests and yields have improved over the years. He is interested in talking with both the current and the next generation of farmers, and invites everyone to “bring your ideas as well as your questions”. Open discussion format. All are welcome.

When: Tuesday, July 23 – 6PM until dark – field walk at 6:30
Where: Morton farm 1066 Syer Line, RR#1 Fraserville
