Event description

Description

Join Sonoma RCD and Jackson Family Wines to learn about their Healthy Soils Demonstration Project, which is looking at how tillage and compost application influences soil health and productivity within a working vineyard. The workshop will describe the long-term field trial started in 2018 at Saralee’s Vineyard and highlight what management practices other vineyards can adopt to improve soil health and sequester more carbon in their soil. The workshop will conclude with a field tour of the test plots so please dress accordingly.

Morning pastries, coffee, and tea will be provided by Jackson Family Wines.

This field tour is part of the RCD’s ongoing Soil Health Series. Please visit the North Coast Soil Hub at http://soilhub.org/ to learn more about soil health and other upcoming events in the region.

QUESTIONS? Please contact Anya Starovoytov, project manager at (707) 569-1448 ext 109 or email astarovoytov@sonomarcd.org

The 2017 Healthy Soils Demonstration Project is funded by the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Funds and is part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing GHG emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment.
