He has seen and worked in agro-ecosystems across the U.S. Ashley is the founder of Geosmin Agricultural Solutions, an agricultural and environmental solutions company.
Jason Halm – Jason is the farm manager at Green Earth Harvest, a midsized, organic, vegetable farm in Naperville. Each year, about 15 acres of the farm are planted with straight cover crops and 10-15 acres are planted with vegetables along with either a spring or fall cover crop. Jason has experience working with about 5 different cover crop mixes as well as single species cover cropping. He is continually expanding his knowledge about cover crops and hopes to learn more about intercropping with covers and utilizing terminated cover crops as mulch.
