Field Lab: Less Toil, Better Soil

Under-sowing veg with green manures

The Bank, Neilston Development Trust

Join the start of a new Field Lab exploring ways to improve soil health and reduce the need for weeding, hosted by social enterprise Locavore.

Over the next year at Left Field, they will be under-sowing kale with different green manure mixes to combat weeds, improve soil fertility and increase yields. 

Join us at the kick-off meeting in February for a discussion about green manures and cultivation techniques, followed by a complimentary organic lunch and a tour of the market garden.

Free to market gardeners, growers, and farmers. 

This event is fully booked. Add your name to waiting list or contact csandison@soilassociation.org for more information.

Funding for this activity is made available through the SRDP Knowledge Transfer and Innovation Fund (which is jointly funded by the Scottish Government and the European Union), with partner funding from Quality Meat Scotland, Forestry Commission Scotland, Innovative Farmers and The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Foundation
