Keeping Water in our Soil: Uplands Watershed Group Farm Tour and Farmer-Fisherman Lunch

July 27

Come discuss practices that are useful for your farm and that help water infiltrate into your soil. See no-till drilling, cover crops, and managed pasture systems that conserve soil and nutrients. Look inside a soil pit and see how in-field soil test are conducted.  Then enjoy burgers, plus seafood, caught by fisherman in the Gulf – whose challenges with nutrient build-up and biological die-off in the Gulf Dead Zone – we are seeking to help through our conservation practices. Hear Gulf fisherman Lance Nacio explain why our actions matter.

For questions, contact Margaret Krome, Micheal Fields Agricultural Institute, 608-283-1440, mkrome@sbcglobal.net or Gene Schrieder, Iowa County Extension at 608-930-9850.
