Plasticulture Workshop Recap

Plasticulture Workshop Recap

Heavy rains rendered the Cannon Horticulture too mucky for the planned plasticulture demonstration at the May 9 workshop, but ODAFF and the Kerr Center are nothing if not adaptable.

The demonstration simply moved to dry ground under the cover of the pole barn, and the dozen hearty souls stout enough to brave the inclement weather were treated to a demonstration of the BCS walk-behind tractor’s plastic-laying attachment.

If you missed this one, let it be the last: check out the rest of the Kerr Center’s 2015 events lineup.
