Virtual Soil Health Field Day
October 8, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
From perennial crops to cropland grazing, we want to help farmers maximize their soil health!
Join the Washington Conservation District for a virtual field day with local farmer, Pam Arnold; learning how they apply their cover crop mix for greatest success! Pam Arnold farms 40-acres of land in Scandia along the St. Croix River and is the owner of Salt-n-Pepper Farm LLC . She is certified through the Minnesota Ag Water Quality program and was recognized as the Washington County Outstanding Conservationist in 2018. Pam is a fierce advocate for the St. Croix River and enthusiastic about getting more women involved in farming.
Additionally, hear from local experts at the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, the Minnesota Soil Health Coalition, and the Carnelian Marine St. Croix Watershed District who will share about the benefits of soil health practices, how to take advantage of the cropland grazing exchange program, and what financial resources are available to help you apply these conservation practices to your own farm!
