Healthy soils for small coastal dairies workshop

Tuesday December 17, 2019
10am to 2pm (Lunch included)
Valley Ford, CA

Are you interested in soil health on small coastal dairies? This workshop is intended for dairy producers, ranchers, agency partners, technical service providers and land stewards who are interested in learning more about the California Department of Food and Agriculture's Healthy Soils Program. Gold Ridge RCD received grant funding for a CDFA Healthy Soils Program demonstration project at the Ocean Breeze Dairy. The project is in its second year, and we will provide updates on the two carbon beneficial conservation practices being implemented: applying compost on 30.0 acres of grassland and installing two acres of riparian forest buffer. The workshop will take place at the dairy. Directions will be provided upon registration.
