Field Notes – August 2018

Field Notes August 2018

The start of school is just around the corner – and it’s still hot as blazes. This month, we share some learning opportunities – as well as tips on beating the heat.

David Redhage has word of a wealth of new educational resources on sustainable agriculture – all free online.

Many new ranchers find themselves in the thick of things before they’re ready. We share lessons our interns learned from a similar experience setting up a rotational grazing system on the fly.

We also offer insights gleaned from our horticulture program about how to make the most of irrigation in hot summer weather.

In addition, keep up to date on farmland loss (and what can be done to stop it), and look out for an upcoming workshop for beginning beekeepers.
