Location: Harmony Arboretum & Strutz Farm, N3890 Cty E, Peshtigo
Date: September 23, 2022
Time: 9:30am - 3:00pm
Join us to discuss practices that benefit your farm and help water infiltrate into your soil. See how different management practices conserve soil and nutrients, and witness the results in real time with a rainfall simulator.
Get an earthworm’s view of the field from a soil pit and learn how to assess your own fields’ soil health; participating farmers will also be able to take a free soil-health test kit back to their farm to measure compaction, infiltration and soil stability, compliments of a grant.
Lunch is included in the registration.
Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email. There is no charge to participate.
The event is co-sponsored by UW Madison, Division of Extension and the Marinette County Land & Water Conservation Division.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to limited funding, priority for attendance (and soil health kits) will be given to those who farm in and adjacent to the Peshtigo River Watershed. If capacity limits are reached, those outside the target area may be placed on a waiting list.
