The No-Till Growers Podcast Network

Dec 11, 2023

Hey nerds, Farmer Jesse here, and we're going to break from our regularly scheduled podcasting to bring you a special bonus episode--a roundtable with three living legends: Helen Atthowe, David Blanchard, & Lou Johns. These have been three huge inspirations of my own and I wanted to get them together to discuss living pathways and how they manage them on different acreage and in different systems. This is a very long and in-depth conversation and we cover: how to manage living pathways, strip tillage, mowing walkways, establishing paths, best tillers for strip tillage, and a whole lot more. We hope you enjoy this roundtable as much as we did and we hope to do more of them soon! 

Mentioned in the show...

The Ecological Farm: A Minimalist, No-Till, No-Spray, Selective-Weeding, Grow-Your-Own Fertilizer, System for Organic Agriculture by Helen Atthowe
