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. Hear from local farmers about their experiences, and from Marathon County CPZ about conservation funding opportunities.
Lunch is included in the registration. Pre-registration by October 12 is requested to ensure enough meals and handouts for all participants.
Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive a confirmation email, send a message to Kevin.Erb@wisc.edu .
Please complete one form for all participating from your farm or business
There is no registration fee.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to limited funding, priority for attendance (and soil health kits) will be given to those who farm in and around the Fenwood watershed. If capacity limits are reached, those outside the target area may be placed on a waiting list.
