Radio giveaway—Cover crop prize from Peaceful Valley & America’s Home Grown Veggies

  Radio giveaway—Cover crop prize from Peaceful Valley & America’s Home Grown Veggies
Our Soil Builder Mix cover crop in action.

What’s the biggest money saver in organic gardening? Cover crops.

By planting a cover crop in the fall you can save big bucks on fertilizer. How big? If you have a 50-foot x 60-foot garden you can save $100 by planting a fall cover crop instead of buying bagged fertilizer in the spring.

Plant a cover crop in the fall, till it in come springtime, and you’ll have nitrogen in your soil, plus the “green manure” that supports microbial life.

Curious about this economical building block of organic gardening and farming? Listen to the latest episode of America’s Home Grown Veggies radio show on Saturday, August 11, 2012. Host Kate Copsey talks with two of our staff experts on cover crops—Mark Fenton and Sarah Griffin-Boubacar.

The live show will feature a giveaway—listen to win 5 pounds of our PVFS Organic Premium Soil Builder Mix and the Garden Combination Mix Inoculant to get those legumes going.

America‚Äôs Home Grown Veggie Show airs every Saturday morning at 10 a.m. ET, 7 a.m. PT from the studio of Radio Sandy Springs (AM 1620 Atlanta) and is streamed live on America’s Web Radio, with podcasts available.

Tune in while Kate, Sarah, and Mark discuss what cover crops are, how to choose crops to bust clods or fix nitrogen or attract beneficial insects. Whether you have a raised bed or 10 acres, cover crops are the budget-minded, organic grower’s best friend!
