Conservation Training

Soil Health - Fenwood Creek Watershed - Marathon County

October 14, 2022

9:30 am – 3:00 pm
Location: Edgar, WI

Join us to discuss practices that benefit your farm and help water infiltrate into your soil. See how different management practices conserve soil and nutrients, and witness the results in real time with a rainfall simulator.

Get an earthworm’s view of the field from a soil pit and learn how to assess your own fields’ soil health; participating farmers will also be able to take a free soil-health test kit back to their farm to measure compaction, infiltration and soil stability, compliments of a grant. Hear from local farmers about their experiences, and from Marathon County CPZ about conservation funding opportunities.
