Here are two upcoming webinars offered by NC SARE and E Organic. They are free and are intended for farmers and beginning farmers seeking to expand their knowledge: the first one on organic transplants and soil media (TODAY @ 2 PM EST) and the second one (next Tue) on beginning dairy (I see the local organic cheese industry is growing in demand big time!) Read on to get a summary and find the registration link.
Cheers and hope to "see you today"
eOrganic will be hosting 2 interesting webinars this week... here are the details...
Growing Organic Transplants Webinar Tomorrow, Organic Dairy Broadcast on Friday
There is still time to register for this Tuesday's eOrganic webinar on
Root Media and Soil Fertility for Organic Transplants, presented by
John Biernbaum of Michigan State University at 2PM Eastern Time (1PM
Central, 12PM Mountain, 11AM Pacific Time). In this webinar, John will
focus on helping farmers understand simplified
root media and fertility management options for high quality
transplants. Topics covered include: 1) growing container options, 2)
selecting and blending root media components and amendments, 3) water
soluble and mid-crop nutrient sources, 4) compost as a
primary, on-farm or locally available root media and nutrient
management tool, and 5) how irrigation methods impact root media and
nutrient management. The webinar is free and open to the public, and
advance registration is required. Register now at
On Friday, join the eOrganic dairy team for a live broadcast of a
presentation by Heather Darby of the University of Vermont, and Cindy
Daley of the University of California-Chico from the NOFA-NY Organic
Dairy and Field Crop Conference in Syracuse, New
York, entitled Healthy Soils for a Healthy Organic Dairy Farm. The
presenters will discuss how to build and maintain healthy soils and
soil testing for nutrients and overall health. They will share recent
on-farm research results that show the changes in forage quality and
milk production on amended and non-amended organic pastures. The free
broadcast will take place on November 4, 2011 at 1:15 PM Eastern Time
(12:15 PM Central, 11:15 AM Mountain, 10:15 AM
