Event Details

This spring 2019 Singing Frogs Farm is proud to continue our intensive, hands-on workshops to teach the science and mechanics behind our multi-award winning, no-till, agroecological, intensive and profitable farming methods. Build your ecology, both above and below ground. Learn how to farm with (and for) Mother Nature. Understand how, in using these natural systems, you too can increase your soil organic matter, crop nutrient density and overall productivity. 

The workshops will give participants the hands-on experience that, for many of us, is the best way to learn... by doing. We will cover and discuss the following topics: 
  • Overview of our Intensive, No-Till Farming Model
  • Basics of Soil Biology and Principles of Better Soil Health
  • Establishing New No-Till Beds or Fields
  • Seeding and Nursery Management
  • Compost, the Science and Application
  • Bed Preparation, Transplanting & Multicropping
  • Year-Round Production and the Management of No-Till Beds
  • Alternate Methods for No-Till Bed Management
  • Ecological Foundations, Hedgerows, Pollinators & Beneficials
  • When & When Not to use Mulch: Options and Applications
  • Tools for Non-Mechanized, No-Till Farming
  • Crop Planning

We are offering three intensive, single-day workshops this autumn.

Tuesday, March 5th
Wednesday, March 20th
Tuesday, April 9th
 
Want to come in autumn? We'll have more workshops in September and October as well. 
   
Workshops will run from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm with a 30 minute lunch. We'll spend an intensive day in the fields and send you home with new knowledge, skills and techniques for soil building, carbon farming and enhanced production as well as a dozen pages of notes on some of the nitty gritty details of our unique farming system.  
 
Please bring your own lunch. We will provide coffee, tea, and veggies from the farm for you to snack on, but please come prepared with  food to fuel you through the day. Tools will be supplied. Please dress appropriately including boots, hats or gloves if desired, and a water bottle. We will be working.

Beginning Farmer ‘Extended’ Intensive

New this Spring, we’re offering an opportunity for 1-2 beginning farmers per workshop to have an extended learning experience. For one to three full days post workshop you will work alongside our farm crew to gain more experience and insights into bed-preparation, harvest, seeding and more. We are opening this experience for those who have at least one year of production farm experience and are currently operating, or have firm plans to begin, their own farm. Apply with a brief description of your background and interest via email to info@singingfrogsfarm.com using the subject heading “Beginning Farmer Extended Intensive”.

Singing Frogs Farm


“As beginning farmers, we visited over 50 farms in our search for a model. As soon as we saw Singing Frogs Farm a light bulb went off in our heads. Using Paul and Elizabeth’s farming model we have transformed our small urban farm into an ecologically and economically sustainable operation. We have witnessed first hand the positive effects of working with nature to grow more nutrient dense produce for our community. We are so fortunate to have met such amazing farmers, educators, activists and all around great people to inspire us as we “grow” as farmers.”
