Green Fire Farm – Multi-Species Cover Cropping & Grassland Set-Asides

Posted on Tuesday, 19 December 2023 under Farmers Videos

Watch a highlight video from our Multi-Species Cover Cropping & Grassland Set-Asides Field Day hosted at Green Fire Farm.

Located on 40 acres in the Cowichan Valley, Green Fire Farm grows a diverse mix of certified organic vegetables, fruits, and flowers, raises livestock and grows hay on pasture rotations. They are a family-run farm, focused on sustaining their business while stewarding the soils, water, and biodiversity, and building their capacity to contribute meaningfully to their community.

With a view towards a set of basic soil health principles, their cover cropping practices at Green Fire Farm aim to: maximize living roots in the ground, maximize soil cover, minimize disturbance, and where possible, to maximize biodiversity.
