In this workshop, Mat will share some of the Biointensive tools and techniques he uses on his farm. The techniques encourage a thriving ecosystem of bacteria and fungi in the soil which helps to improve fertility and crop health.
Meet the facilitator
Mat has been farming in Ottawa for the past 5 years, growing a variety of organic vegetables at Capital Greens Urban Farm. He started out growing vegetables in people’s suburban front and backyards before he took on a larger plot of land at the Just Food Community Farm. He also rents space in a heated greenhouse on-site. He runs a small vegetable CSA and market farm as well as an organic vegetable nursery, supplying seedlings to local gardeners and farmers alike.
