Field Day at Synergia Ranch
September 10 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm MDT
Field Day on Succession Plantings, Microbial Inoculations, and Simple Field Trial Designs
Join us on Saturday, September 10, 2022 from 10:00 am.-3:00 pm on Synergia Ranch (located 20 miles South of Santa Fe in the Cerrillos Hills) to learn about succession plantings, multiple options for microbial inoculations, and simple field trial designs!
At this field day, led by Synergia’s farm manager and Soil Health Champion Dr. Starrlight Augustine, we’ll work together to plant fall succession crops and apply beneficial microbes using a range of approaches, from Johnson-Su seed inoculations to injections of compost extracts and compost teas—all in the context of a simple field trial approach that you can adapt to evaluate practices at your farm, ranch, or garden.
This workshop will be followed by a harvest and data collection workshop on Saturday, November 12, where we’ll gather data and learn how to assess the field trial results.
As always, this field day includes a free, grant-funded lunch where you’ll get the chance to make and strengthen connections with other people in the sustainable agriculture sector.
Note: Vaccination against Covid-19 is required for participation in this field day.
This workshop is hosted in partnership with the New Mexico Healthy Soil Working Group and the Seeding Regenerative Agriculture Project.
