CRAFT is Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training, and CRAFT Farm Tours are intensive tours and discussions – Intended to allow many different farms to send Interns and Workers, to visit each others operations.  The objective is Farmer Training, and regional networking.

This Farm Tour will review Equipment used at North Slope Farm, to manage permanent raised Garden Beds (intensive) and Field Beds, which are intended to be less labor intensive.  We will visit the permanent Beds and Field Beds to discuss the details of management, for both.  The permanent raised beds are being managed with a process of Solarizing to break down prior crops, before replanting, in an effort to reduce tillage.  Farmer Mike will share his experiences with this strategy.

In addition, on this tour, we will visit some mature Hazelnuts, and if time allows, visit our newly beginning Hazelnut Orchard, to see the initial planting of Pollinator varieties and Mikes attempt to get the Orchard established, using Organic Management.
