Join us for an, ‘Intro to Dry Farming Vegetables’ presentation with OSU Dry Farming Project leader, Amy Garrett, followed by a tour of Gowen farm. Darlene Gowen of Gowen Farm has been hosting trials with the OSU Dry Farming Project since 2016 and is involved in multiple research projects this year including site suitability study, fungal inoculant study, potato variety trials, and more. We will wrap up with a debrief from the Marion Polk Food Share and Bill and Carol Sutkus of the Marion County Master Gardeners on their dry farming trials for the past two years and have time for questions and discussion at the end.
