2017 Small Farms Winter Webinar Series -Benefits of Mulching Vegetables

March 23, 2017 (1:00 PM - 3:00 PM )

Mar. 23 - Benefits of Mulching Vegetables, James Theuri, University of Illinois Extension Local Food Systems and Small Farms Educator - Mulching can be a an attractive and profitable addition to any vegetable garden.  Besides giving the garden a finished look, mulch can reduce the labor required for weeding, moderate soil temperatures, conserve water, and even improve yields.  This presentation will provide science-based data to support these points, and help growers make decisions on type, timing, and management of mulches in the vegetable garden.

The webinars can be accessed on-line from your personal computer. In case you cannot attend these dates, register anyway to view an archived, recorded version. Information will be provided via email (by the Monday after airing) for viewing at your convenience.
