 Wiki for Farmers!

Tilth Producers is seeking articles written by growers and others agricultural experts to share as the foundation for Tilth Producers’ new Wiki for Farmers! The Wiki for Farmers will mirror Wikipedia as a free-access, free content encyclopedia-like database. By using a mix of research-based articles, farmer narratives, tips and methods about farming, this Wiki will provide a platform for the exchange of information.

Join our interactive community to share your knowledge by visiting the Wiki for Farmers page. Questions? Email wiki@tilthproducers.org.
