Use Cover Crops to Improve Soil

Cover cropping is a foundation of organic growing. It's a practice that uses natural processes to keep soil healthy and active by balancing garden ecosystems during periods when food crops are not being grown. Cover crops include grasses, nitrogen-fixing legumes, and a variety of flowers.
