At the Healthy Soil, Healthy Water Workshop, farmers and others in the Wisconsin River Basin will hear firsthand from individuals involved in locally-led efforts to build soil health, conserve nutrients, reduce erosion, and improve water quality.
Keynote speakers Ray “The Soils Guy” Archuleta and Fred “Dr.Dirt” Madison, both with decades of experience promoting soil health, will educate and entertain. Workshop sessions will feature local ag producers speaking on the day to day challenges and rewards of incorporating conservation practices into their operations, including no till, strip till, and cover crops. The workshop will also feature producers involved in farmer-led conservation, as well as citizens and municipal and county staff involved in efforts towards healthy soil and water.
