FARMWALK 2018: On-Farm Conservation, Irrigation & Beneficial Pollinators
This will be a fully bilingual FARMWALK offered with support from WSU Skagit County Extension, Viva Farms and the USDA!

Our host, Manuel Mendoza, has successfully made the transition from farm worker to farm owner by purchasing the 60-acre White Bear Orchards he had worked on for 25 years. Manuel will discuss and demonstrate his organic pest management strategies and implementation of beneficial pollinator habitat. Working together with WSU entomologists we will scout for beneficial insects and discuss ways of further enhancing their habitat. We will also consider varietal selection to enhance pest management strategies. Well also have a chance to learn more about Manuels updated irrigation system, which he has installed to help conserve and manage his water more efficiently.

¡Esta será una FARMWALK completamente bilingüe ofrecida con el apoyo de WSU Skagit County Extension, Viva Farms y el USDA!

Nuestro anfitrión, Manuel Mendoza, ha hecho exitosamente la transición de trabajador agrícola a propietario de granja al comprar los huertos de osos blancos de 60 acres en los que trabajó durante 25 años.
