The California Farm Demonstration Network (CFDN) is hosting a series of farm visits for agricultural producers during the months of May and June that will demonstrate how long-term goals for healthy soil are being achieved at each farm—without compromising production. Farmers using various soil health practices (such as cover crops, conservation tillage and more) will discuss their soil health management systems and experiences. Network partners, including representatives from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, UC Cooperative Extension, Resource Conservation Districts and other partners will also be on hand to explain monitoring and evaluation work being done on the farms. This visit to Sano Farms begins at 10 a.m.
