Description

Sonoma RCD and Jackson Family Wines invite growers to come learn the latest findings from their Healthy Soils Demonstration Project.

The workshop will include:

- Welcome from Jackson Family Wines
- Project introduction and research questions being studied
- Highlights of other regional soil health research in vineyards
- Insights from baseline and Year 1 soil data by technical advisor Dr. Josh Beniston
