Speakers:

Frank Gibbs: is a Certified Soil Scientist. He formed Wetland and Soil Consulting Services in 2012 after working for 36 years for USDA in Ohio.

Frank will be sharing ideas on no-till farming and talking from the soil pit where he will compare a section of the farm that has NEVER been tilled to the rest of the field that has a history of tillage.

He was an assistant professor and Extension Educator for Ohio State Extension for 25 years specializing in soil health, cover crops, nutrient recycling and water quality.

Jim will be sharing his studies and experiences with Slugs & Voles as more farmers turn to no-till and high residue farming.

NOTE: A non-GMO corn variety trial is on-site for those interested.

Please Note: This workshop will be held in the old Gambrel - roofed dairy barn on the second floor. Access to that room is up a sloped driveway and unfortunately will not be Handicap Accessible.
