Tainter Creek’s Farmer-Led Council Field Day
July 25, 2018 - July 26, 2018
The Tainter Creek Watershed Farmer Council is hosting two Soil Building and Healthy Farms events featuring nationally renowned soil health consultant and expert Ray Archuleta.
Presentations and engaging discussions will cover many themes focused on building and improving a farm’s soil. Featured topics include cutting costs, reducing flood impacts and farm inputs by using cover crops, managed grazing, and livestock. On-site soil pits, rainfall simulator, and the new roller-crimper will be on demonstration to help improve one’s bottom line.
The first event will be held Wednesday, July 25 from 6-9:30 p.m. and the second event is Thursday, July 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Attendees will get the most benefit from Archuleta’s experience by participating each day. Both events are located at Woodhill Farms, S7589 Tainter Hollow Road, Viroqua.
Tickets are $25 for one event or $35 to attend both and each include a meal. Reduced rate available for students. All proceeds will go toward improving the Tainter Creek Watershed. Crop consultants will earn CEU credits. Advanced registration is required and tickets are limited.
