WALPOLE, N.H. — The Cheshire County Conservation District and Stonewall Farm invite the public to join them for an evening of hands on learning about soil health in vegetable production on Wednesday, August 12th from 5-7pm. This event will be held on site at Stonewall Farm – 242 Chesterfield Rd. Keene, NH.
Facilitated by Stonewall Farm staff, discussion will focus on how to identify current problems with your soil and management techniques that can be used to solve those problems and build healthier soil. Facilitators will also share the various techniques they have been trialing and testing at Stonewall Farm over the past four years, including transitioning to no-till, cover cropping and soil prep techniques.
This workshop is free to the public, but attendance will be limited to a total of 10 participants due to the ongoing Covid19 pandemic. Attendees will be required to wear masks and practice social distancing. Registration is required: https://stonewallhealthysoil.
