Want to learn how to assess soil health and incorporate practices like “planting green” and grazing cover crops? A virtual Land Stewardship Project (LSP) workshop will feature soil health experts Jay Fuhrer and Jon Stika from 1-4 p.m. on Tuesday, February 16. All Zoom experience levels are welcome and guidance to using the platform will be given in the first 10 minutes of the program; participants may video connect from laptops or telephones, or simply call into the event.
Fuhrer was part of the highly influential Soil Health Team in North Dakota’s Burleigh County, and now does research at Menoken Farm. Stika is a retired soil scientist and soil health instructor and is currently a research technician at the North Dakota State University Dickinson Research Extension Center. He is also author of “A Soil Owner’s Manual: How To Restore and Maintain Soil Health.”
The workshop will include small group breakouts, presentations and time for questions and discussion. The event is free, but registration is required. You can register at landstewardshipproject.org/events/item/1576 and any questions can be sent to LSP Organizer, Connor Dunn email@example.com.
