Cover Crops

Cover-cropping enhances soil health and is an important part of most no-till systems. Moonhill utilizes cover cropping methods throughout the year, taking advantage of a diverse mix of plants that nourish and replenish heavily cultivated garden beds. Moonhill steers plantings away from monoculture stands. Combined with companion planting, cover crops all help contribute to rich soil, healthy plants, and minimal pests and disease.

Moonhill encourages self-seeding and replants with collected seeds each year but does replenish stock with varieties primarily from West Coast Seeds.
