Tilling Wood Chips into Vegetable Fields

AVF CA HSP Video report Sep2108

Ananda Valley Farm trialed tilling wood chips into vegetable fields as part of a California Healthy Soil Program (CA HSP) grant. This video summarizes the result from the 1st year in September 2018.

Contrary to much gardening and farming advice to not till wood chips into beds, we have found it can be beneficial with some caveats.

As part of our grant, we need to show farmers have seen this video. Could you add a comment below with your farm name and whether you might try some of these techniques? THANKS

Also we will be hosting a Field Tour Oct. 20, 2018 Saturday from 11am to Noon.
You can come by and see how we grow and our trial results in person.

We are in Half Moon Bay, CA (google maps finds us.)
