This two-day workshop includes lectures and field work that will focus on overall soil health and a balanced farm system, which can be achieved through the following areas: cover cropping, compost, biodiversity, and biodynamic field sprays. You’ll come away with practical information to incorporate one, or all, of these practices into your own vineyard.
The workshop will be led by Joseph Brinkley, Director of Vineyard Operations at Bonterra Organic Vineyards.
