Merry Lea prides itself with creating a sustainable farm. This year they will introduce a mixed planting field. It will contain species such as fruit trees, rhubarb, asparagus, etc. They also intend on leaving rows for grass. Allowing grasses to grown in-between can help soils health and prevent erosion. Creating sustainable agricultural is important because we will always need food. The less work it takes, the more money is saved and the less we disturb the environment, making it better for everyone. By using such techniques we also save the lands fertility and help to prevent erosion.
