MILLHEIM, PA. — The Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture will host a field day called Adapting to Climate Change by Building Soil Health, Nov. 7, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., at Kretschmann Family Farms in Rochester, Beaver County, Pennsylvania.
Registration is required and costs $30 for PASA members, $45 for non-members. Attendees will be led on a guided tour of Kretschmann Family Farms by owners Becky and Don Kretschmann.
The tour will cover the Kretschmann’s systems and strategies for crop rotation, cover cropping, and limiting cultivation, all with the intention of building organic matter, providing biological fertility and reducing erosion.
After the tour, participants will engage in an active exploration of how the Kretschmann’s might shift their windows for planting, harvest, and cultivating in light of current projections for Pennsylvania’s changing climate.
