Event Navigation

RSVP HERE

Sonoma RCD and Sonoma Mountain Institute (http://sonomamountaininstitute.org/) invite ranchers and prospective ranchers to come to learn the latest findings from their Healthy Soils Demonstration Project. This demonstration field trail started in 2018 on a private 300-acre ranch owned by the Sonoma Mountain Institute, is looking at how compost application influences soil health and forage productivity on a working rangeland. This tailgate will include a discussion on the comparison of our baseline vs year 1 soil samples on both treatment and control plots as well as a discussion of practice adoption pros and cons from the ranch manager. We’ll also hear from professionals on how to determine the best type of compost for your ranch.

 

A more detailed agenda will be posted on our website in the coming weeks. Please don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about boosting soil health on your own ranch!
