Eco Farm Days 2018

Eco Farm Days 2018 poster
The theme this year is one simple word – Adaptation. In the context of agriculture, however, that single word conjures up a great many different issues facing farmers.

Some ideas we will explore at Eco Farm Days are:

  • How can farmers adapt to a changing climate
  • how do plant nutrient needs change over time
  • breeding new plant varieties for your farm
  • exploring better ways to feed your animals
  • and more.

We’ll also be reporting on COG OSO’s 2016-2017 work in the community, recognizing our dedicated volunteers, and will be providing refreshments.
