Farmer Workshop

4 hours 26 min ago
Tuesday, November 14, 2017 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
The High Desert Food & Farm Alliance is partnering up with OSU Extension's Clare Sullivan to put on an amazing workshop at Seed to Table Farm in Sisters next Tuesday Nov 14th from 3-5 PM. This is a great opportunity to learn how OSU Extension can benefit your farm through programs and research. 
We will have discussions on soil fertility and best management practices of season extendersand invite all of you to share knowledge of getting the most out of season extenders. We'll also tour several different styles of high tunnels and have information on how to get funding for them (that's the big question isn't it?)! 
Tom Bennett from NRCS will be there to answer any questions about the High Tunnel Initiative, which is a fabulous grant opportunity that could help you get a High Tunnel on your farm. We will also discuss another funding opportunity through HDFFA. 
We're happy to announce that we've made this exciting professional development opportunity FREE and open to everyone (so invite your farmer friends and farm crew/interns). We'll also be providing light refreshments. PLEASE RSVP by calling (542) 390-3572 or emailing shaili@hdffa.org
