Farming processes have changed over the last four decades, and now, Harborview takes a more holistic approach to farming, growing good food and protecting the environment. New technology that has been incorporated into the farm, such as self-steering tractors and equipment that can check crop growth and other pieces that determine where best to plant. This technology not only reduces the cost of seeds and fertilizer, it also helps minimize loss of nutrients to the groundwater and the Bay.  Other technological improvements that help reduce nutrient runoff include switchgrass, cover crops, and buffer planting.  Join us to learn how these improved farming practices have helped not only reduce the cost of food, but have also help clean up the Chesapeake Bay.
