The Michael Fields Agricultural Institute and the Uplands Watershed Council from the Spring Green area held another great cover crops education event on Friday, July 28. Lance Nucio, a shrimper who lives and works in the estuary at the mouth of the Mississippi River in Louisiana, attended the event in Spring Green. He wore a t-shirt that said, “Don’t farm naked – plant cover crops.”
