Conservation Tillage – A brief instructional video


For one year, my Ecology major professor and I met during each of the seasons at his teaching farm and lab, Spring Valley EcoFarms, to record another crucial step of the conservation tillage process.

I'd like to direct your attention to the outstanding videographer who helped me, Katie Smith, and the extremely talented teacher/editor/mentor, James Biddle, who regularly checked in on edits.
