[Retrospective] Vineyards Special #1: The Wonders of Cover Crops


While we will continue to make new episodes, there are times when we feel the urge to highlight a past episode - because the topic it covers becomes news and the show shares some great insights, or because it is content that our newer listeners might have missed out on. Since last year was the International Year of Soils, we will be republishing a few of our best episodes about soil and soil health to get a fresh perspective in light of all the progress that has been made on the issue.

To round-off the series, we're ending with a in-depth look at a popular and very effective sustainable agricultural technique: cover cropping. In episode 16 of our show, we had with us Bob Cannard and Bob Shaffer - both experienced sustainable farmers and horticulturalists. They shared their techniques with us, explained just how cover cropping works and how beneficial it can be, and gave us their expert advice. We learned a lot about cover crops in making this episode, and if you're wondering after the last two episodes, just what exactly the sustainable agricultural techniques might look like that we need to start pushing for - this is the episode for you.
