Summer Field Days
Saturday, June 1, 2019 - 9:30am to Sunday, June 2, 2019 - 2:00pm
On June 1st and 2nd, Wild Roots Farm Vermont will be partnering with Jennifer Colby from Howling Wolf Farm, and Mark Krawczyk from Valley Clayplain Forest Farm, for an in depth look at pastures, soil and agroforestry systems.
This gathering is intended to inform community members about various methods for building a robust soil network that support grazing livestock, food production, and bio-diversity. There will be time spent in a classroom setting as well as in the field, observing and interacting with living systems.
Saturday 6/1- Jenn and Jon will lead pasture walks through Wild Roots to discuss grazing/rest periods, pasture management, soil building and habitat restoration.
Sunday 6/2- Mark will lead a pasture walk through Valley Clayplain, that demonstrates a working agroforestry system and forest farm.
The cost for one day is $20, and $35 for both. Proceeds support instructors and on-farm education.
*There will be a potluck style lunch, so please bring a dish to share
