Growing a Cover Crop

In Agricultural and Residential, ESF, Sand Hill Farm, Stewardship & Restoration Projects by Administrator

This CCC crew member helping distribute seed in the areas where we had erosion channels form after  ~ 1.47 inches of rain fell last week. This detailed work will help address minor erosion issues now so that those spots do not become larger problems after more rain, which we’re expecting this week.

Also, we are literally watching the cover crop grow before our eyes! The photo below shows how nice and green most of the upper fields look. The middle fields just below have only had rain irrigation and those fields are starting to erupt with green. We will turn on the irrigation if needed based on the rain we get.
