This series covers all the steps involved with bed preparation and planting while highlighting the fundamentals of Climate Farming™. Climate Farming™ is designed to sequester carbon, supercharge topsoil quality, and feed American families! It's based on five key principles:

  • The integration of animals in growing operations
  • The minimization of topsoil disturbance
  • The stratified planting of varied species, including cover crops
  • Use of appropriale erosion and water management techniques
  • Continual soil improvement programs like composting

The first installment, available now, demonstrates the digging of a micro-swale - a small trench to direct the flow of rainwater so that it sinks into the soil - using the BCS two-wheel tractor with rotary plow attachment.

BCS is the largest European manufacturer of premium, all-gear-driven, two-wheel tractors and attachments. Millions of customers in more than 80 countries depend upon BCS every day for demanding tasks, including gardening, mowing, snow removal, property maintenance, and more. The farm-based concept of accomplishing seasonal tasks with PTO-driven attachments, rather than purchasing separate single-purpose machines, saves money, minimizes maintenance, requires less storage space, and increases productivity by using gear-driven mechanics (rather than belt- and chain-driven tools).
