Farm Water Management Seminar (Pender)

January 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

A free, full-day seminar for farmers and others, featuring Watershed Specialist Natalie Bandringa (CRD), Tayler Krawczyk (Hatchet & Seed), and Gord Baird (Ecosense).

Sponsored by the Pender Islands Farmers Institute, this Farm Water Management Seminar will explore flood/drought-proof design strategies for broad-acre landscapes, and new innovative tools for land managers to make better decisions about water management and soil health. We will also demonstrate the use of freely available GIS tools to harmonize farm activities with the goal of slowing, sinking, spreading and storing rainfall. Our target audience includes farmers, ranchers, land managers, (agro) foresters, restoration/watershed professionals and policy makers.
