“Keep it simple” – that’s the mantra that begins Soils at Guelph’s new three-part miniseries, “Cooking with Covers.” The series is meant to underscore three basic principles of cover cropping for first-time or new practitioners: keep it simple, make it pay – and don’t go it alone.

“[The videos] are a way to get advice that’s fun and simple, and to be that starting point for people who haven’t thought about cover crops yet much,” explains Heather White, Soils at Guelph’s knowledge mobilization and communications co-ordinator.
