RegenAg Book KickStarter, Rose Creek No-Till Mod, & Last Two Frith Tickets
Regenerative Agriculture, the book
In case you missed it, podcast guest Richard Perkins launched a KickStarter campeign for the printing of his new book, Regenerative Agriculture a Pragmatic & Comprehensive Manual for the Future of Small Farming. The title alone is a tall order, but if anyone could deliver on a highly diversified, well-planned, functional small-scale farm, he’s the one. No need to worry about supporting the project to see it through, though, because it’s already 300% funded! A testament to his authority on practical profitable permaculture. However, if you want your copy sooner rather than later—for a good Winter read so you can apply some of the concepts next Spring—you’ll definitely want to pre-order it.

Rose Creek to add no-till module
Earlier in the year—yeah, 2019 is three-quarter gone folks—we promoted The Lettuce Masterclass from Ray Tyler of Rose Creek Farms. Though he doesn’t explicitly go into no-till strategies in the course, at least not yet, Ray has a relatively low-till operation to begin with and we learned a great deal about how to produce a beautiful—and lucrative—crop of lettuce in the heat of the Summer (I don’t know about y’all, but it’s been unbelievably hot here in the South). Ray just announced he’s been working on an explicitly no-till module for lettuce production and we love his perspective on it already. The Lettuce Masterclass is currently closed, but follow the link above to sign up for the wait-list and get notified when it reopens.
“Just finished filming a summer long module for our lettuce class on our Zero-Till methods
We did various direct seeded crops ending with this bed of really nice head lettuce despite a insane Sept month of temps flirting nearly everyday with heat indexes of near 100 degrees. I've been playing with a Zero-till system (as in no tilther, hoe not even scratching the beds with even a rake) for some time now, seeing if we can fit it into our high production farm system here on our heavy clay soils here in the south. I'm not dogmatic about no-till, like everything in life, there is a place, time and season to everything... But its ....very fun to work different ways of farming in our system. Seasons change, climate changes, people change, so does our farming practices. It's also what get me excited so much about regenerative sustainable agriculture. Change!”
