Vail Dixon

Small Farm

Use your weeds to radically improve your soil. Seriously. Get to the root of your weed problem and heal your soil — naturally! Did you know that you can prevent weed germination, instead of fighting them once they are dominating? In this session, Vail Dixon will explain how you can use wastes you already have to quickly change the soil in your weediest areas to diverse and healthy. Know how to feed the soil so that you can grow what you want. The secret is in the soil. She will review principles of why weeds grow and how to work with nature to accelerate the healing process, introduce cost-effective and timesaving tools, explain strategies for how to choose the right order and timing of the tools to keep your system going in the right direction, and will walk through case studies that demonstrate what has worked to heal land quickly in a wide variety of farming situations.
