Planting Organic Onions in Woodchips…

A few days ago I had a chance to participate in a new project for me to plant organic white and yellow onions in woodchips. Thanks to organic farmer Hugh Phillips who already uses the no till farming method for some years,Β  I was able to get my hands on sowing onions directly into the woodchips.

Before this project could start, the piece of land in which we planted the onions was covered with woodchips for about 3 years.
