Farm Walk Series: Cover Cropping for Soil Health

May 22, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Tilth Alliance and WSU collaborate for the fourteenth year of the Farm Walk program! The program was designed to transfer the hard-earned expertise of established farmers to the current and next generations of sustainable producers. Each Farm Walk features farmer-to-farmer education through a tour of farm or business, with guest experts on hand to share the most current research and resources.

Farm walks usually take place on Mondays, from noon-4 p.m. Registration is $15 for Tilth Alliance members and students and $25 for non-members.

Join us in Connell to learn how Lenwood Farms uses cover crops to maintain soil fertility. Lenwood Farms is a 600-acre certified organic farm that uses a variety of organic and innovative methods including using hedgerows, integrated pest management, and on-farm solar power. Information on the latest research in cover cropping will be provided by Doug Collins, WSU Small Farms Extension Specialist, and Andy McGuire, Irrigated Cropping System Agronomist.
