On-farm Workshop: Irrigation Systems and Management at Warner Farm
POSTPONED, future date TBD
Warner Farm, 23 South Main Street Sunderland, MA
Warner Farm, a CSA and wholesale farm as well as the home of Mike’s Corn Maze, located in Sunderland, MA, has been developing its irrigation capacity since the late 1970s. The farm’s rich sandy loam has been growing fruit and vegetable crops for centuries and as a changing climate brings changing precipitation patterns to New England, Warner Farm is poised to respond effectively in times of drought.
Join CISA and Dave Wissemann of Warner Farm for an up close look at how they are optimizing their water resources and water distribution systems to ensure the sustainable production of crops throughout the season and in the face of increasingly uncertain growing conditions.
The workshop includes a farm walk to see irrigation equipment and set up and a detailed explanation of how the farm’s systems are designed and maintained. Following the farm walk, join us for further discussion and some locally produced drinks and snacks!
To attend, register and pay here (workshop fee is $10, waiver available upon request.)
