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. The video below is a product of those meetings. But a film is hardly made by one person. 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.
