Appropriate Tools & Technology for the Small Scale Grower

The use of appropriate tools and technology, both in terms of size and practicality, can increase production efficiency and profits while minimizing the disturbance to soil and plant health. This workshop focuses on low tech tools and equipment for both the commercial and backyard vegetable grower wanting to take a minimum tillage approach to production. Grower Dean Buttacavoli will detail various non-mechanical hand tools for soil preparation, planting, and weed management.
