Season Wrap Up: Winter Cover Crop with Katharhy (Victor Flores)

  • New York Hall of Science (map)

For our last 2018 event in Carbon Sponge, learn what is the right cover crop mix for your beds to feed the soil and promote carbon sequestration overwinter. Not every garden has the exact same needs and recipes will vary; often it comes down to factors such soil type, previous crops, nutrient levels, pH and climate. Each participant will leave with a sample cover mixture for overwinter that is customized to what they are growing and their specific soil needs. This is a two-hour workshop geared for adults, but all ages are welcome to drop-in at any time during the workshop. Free with NYSCI admission.

Katharhy (Victor Flores) is an agroecologist and soil researcher at the Environmental Science Analytical Center, Brooklyn College City University of New York, and Agroecology Educator with Cornell Small Farms Program, Baskets to Pallets Education Cohort, NY, NY.
