6605Transforming an old field
- Nov 1, 2007Hi all revolutionaries:)
I have a friend with fields that have been untilled
for over 25 years, only rarely cut for hay.
I'd like to start growing some grain in her fields
using natural farming methods. It's my understanding
that fields like this are the healthiest as the
grassland ecosystem is completely intact.
I wonder if you could help me choose a grain to grow
(I'd love to grow rye, barley, spelt...)
...and help me discover how to nudge the field towards
growing my crop for me... Fukuoka-style. I've read
all his books, but I'm no farmer or gardner (yet).
This would be my first active foray into natural
farming. ! :)
The soil is heavy with clay but not unworkable. The
fields grow very well on their own, growing high and
dense so it's a fertile situation. I live near the
Canadian US border (near Ottawa Ontario Canada).
Any discussion or information is much appreciated.
