Dry-land Farming in the Maritime Pacific Northwest

Multnomah Master Gardeners Speaker Series

Tuesday, March 13, 2018 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Up to a 50% reduction in summer water availability is predicted in Oregon within 50 years. It will be critical for the viability of farms in our region and the security of our food system to increase knowledge and awareness of methods of crop production that require little or no irrigation. To initiate this project, a Dry Farming Demonstration was established in Corvallis, Oregon in 2015. This demonstration expanded to three OSU sites in 2016 and more than 10 farms in Western Oregon hosted dry farming trials via the Dry Farming Collaborative.

Join the Multnomah Master Gardeners Speaker Series as Amy Garrett, OSU, shares how the OSU Extension Service is partnering with growers to increase knowledge and awareness of dry farming management practices and hear about some of the results from their field trials.  Learn how these techniques can be applied in the home garden.
