Have you ever wondered how to make your pastures more robust and healthy? Join us for a walk through the SAHC Community Farm pastures with Ethan Henderson, Noah Henson, and Meghan Baker of Buncombe County Cooperative Extension.
We will identify invasive species and discuss control methods, desirable and undesirable forages, soil testing and overall pasture health. This will be a question-and-answer walk-about, so bring your questions!
If you own and or manage land this will be a worthwhile and informative workshop.
