2018 Dry Farming Field Days

2018 Dry Farming Field DaysThe Oregon State University Extension Small Farms Program is organizing several Dry Farming Field Days this summer. More than 30 sites throughout western Oregon and Washington are hosting trials this year and three of them will be hosting tours. Come learn about dry farming and multiple research projects engaging with the Dry Farming Collaborative, and see crops such as tomatoes, squash, melon, zucchini, dry beans, and corn grown with little or no supplemental irrigation in the field. Corvallis tours are Aug. 13 at the OSU Oak Creek Center for Urban Horticulture, as well as Astoria on Aug. 27 at 46 North Farm. Free but parking is limited so RSVP at  http://smallfarms.oregonstate.edu/dry-farm/dry-farming-project or call OSU Extension office in Benton County at 541-766-3553.
