What’s the secret to getting your tomato plants to fruit early? What are the keys behind easy and effective weeding? And just what goes into creating rich, wonderful compost? Longtime organic gardener Tracie Smith has the answers.

For more than a decade she’s owned and operated a successful CSA in southern New Hampshire. And since 2007 she’s farmed a beautiful stretch of 33 acres of conservation land in Fitzwilliam. Today, more than 250 dedicated families are members of Tracie’s Community Farm, while her produce makes it into the kitchens of restaurants around the Monadnock region.
