Curious about Rainshadow and Regenerative Agriculture?
Join us Wednesday October 20 as we host a Field Day with the Quivira Coalition at Rainshadow.
We will have several presenters throughout the day, with the tour facilitated by farm co-owner Sarahlee Lawrence. Jackie Esleman of the Jefferson Center for Holistic Management, Ecological Outcome Verification (EOV) Program Director will discuss and demonstrate the monitoring and measuring of soil fertility at Rainshadow Organics. Natasha Bellis with the Deschutes Land Trust (DLT) will discuss the partnership that DLT has built with Rainshadow Organics to create conservation easements at the property and how that can apply to other operations. Soil fertility guru and farm intern, Adam Lavender, will talk about what he’s done to build up soil fertility at the farm with compost tea and other closed circle inputs. And to round out the day, field day guests will have the pleasure of enjoying a special 3-course meal prepared in-house by the farm chef utilizing Rainshadow’s seasonal harvest. We will be in a ventilated and partially enclosed porch for the meal and some other parts of the day.
This Field Day includes lunch on the deck, is $50, and is open to 50 people. Registration is required. More information and registration details can be found HERE. Some scholarships are available. Send Lynne at [email protected] an email if you are interested.
The Quivira Coalition builds soil, biodiversity, and resilience on western working landscapes. We foster ecological, economic, and social health through education, innovation, and collaboration…. At the foundation of all our work is the concept that well managed working rangelands and forests are two of the most effective, efficient, and immediately viable paths to remedy the devastating impacts of climate change.
