Peacemeal Farm, Dixmont, Maine
There was an impressive turnout Tuesday evening for the Weed Management workshop at the Peacemeal farm. Part of the Farm Training Project Workshop program organized for farm apprentices, and others, by MOFGA, the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, the presentations, demonstrations and field tour for this session were focused on weeds. After some introductory comments related to the ecology of weeds in organic farming systems, the seventy five participants moved to the field for a demonstration of hand tools, including the Weed Master.
