Farm Tour Lowdown: Woodleaf Farm

Woodleaf Farm
carlCarl Rosato is a master of polyculture. When a whole year’s worth of his well-loved stone fruit was lost to a late frost, the farmer was quick on his feet; he took out several rows of fruit trees, planted tomatoes and other row crops and hoped for the best. While at Woodleaf, a group of curious urbanites wandered through Carl’s orchards learning about everything from soil chemistry to the benefits of solar power and an on-farm bamboo patch.
