This hands-on field day will be hosted by Maya Kosok of Hillen Homestead. Maya will share an overview of small scale flower farming techniques and business tips for small scale producers. Attendees will get a tour of this beautiful flower farm and have the opportunity to see how Hillen Homestead implements sustainable growing methods, including no-till production, no synthetic fertilizers/pesticides, and locally sourced compost for fertility.
