Cover Crops & Vegetable Production on an Incubator Farm

July 31 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT

Join Moses Momanyi as he introduces you to Kilimo Minnesota, a three-to-five-year training program that includes hands-on organic vegetable farming, marketing and sales experience, group classes, networking with other farmers and one-on-one business mentoring. The program is uniquely situated to give emerging farmers an opportunity to learn vegetable growing techniques and business skills in a new climate, country, and culture. Field day attendees will learn and connect with emerging farmers, walk through their many ¼-acre to 1-acre plots of vegetables, learn about different cultural crops grown alongside the Minnesota crops, and see the various stages of being emerging farmers.

Topics Covered:

  • Land access
  • Vegetable and cover crop integration
  • Cover crop crimping
