2018 Farmer Education Workshop: Irrigation Systems with Bountiful Cities

July 12 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

- Free

Farm Workshop: Irrigation systems for small plots, with Bountiful Cities

When: Thursday, July 12 from 5-7 pm

Where: Shiloh Community Garden in Bountiful Cities’ network

Whether growing for market, community or on the homestead, irrigating smaller plots can be a challenge. The layout of the garden and the way in which the garden area is allotted can make a big difference in deciding what type of irrigation system to use. The water source is equally important, as it may determine the method of watering and how much plants will be watered.

Join Chris Link of SAHC and Chris McWhorter of WP Law, irrigation specialists, to look at one local community garden in the Bountiful Cities network as a case study. We will discuss advantages and disadvantages of various system designs to get your questions answered!

This  workshop is open to the public; everyone is welcome!

Cost: Free

Questions? Contact Chris Link at Chris@appalachian.org or 828.490.2565. Pre-registration is required; space is limited. Rain or shine.
