If you’re an avid gardener you’ve probably heard of companion planting. You may have also heard it’s a phony practice or tried it yourself with mixed results. So does it actually work? Farmer and gardener, Reeves Cochran, Field Production Manager at Volante Farms, Needham, explores the science, myths, and misconceptions around companion planting in a talk designed to broaden your knowledge and prepare you for improved success in the garden this year! 

Reeves Cochran is a farmer, gardener and vegetable lover. He has been farming and studying agriculture since 2011. His farming experience has brought him all around New England to various thriving farm businesses, including one he cofounded in 2015. Reeves has an acute interest in organic agriculture and natural growing methods. He is currently a field production manager at Volante Farms in Needham.
