A Longtime Farmer Shares His Wisdom (part 2)


Watch Part 1

For over forty years, Nash Huber has grown healthy plants, soil, seeds — and now future farmers. He nurtures soil fertility with compost, cover crops and chicken tractors. He saves seeds from plants that are best suited to local growing conditions — that’s how he developed his own variety of purple kale. He rotates crops in various plots, so soil can be given a rest and replenish depleted nutrients. As for future farmers, Nash says it takes ten years minimum for young folks to learn how to farm — all hands-on, of course. Episode 245. [nashsorganicproduce.com].
