Caitlin Arnold and Brandon Wickes spent eight months as draft horse interns on a successful organic vegetable farm in Ontario, Canada, this past year and will talk about working with the horses, and the tools and equipment they used to grow vegetables for a 220–member CSA. They see draft horse farming as a viable alternative to using fossil fuels and are hoping to start their own draft-powered farm business in 2015. This slide show will provide attendees with a basic understanding of modern horse-powered organic farming and will be followed by a Q and A. Resources will be provided for those interested in learning more about and/or pursuing horse-powered farming.
