Heavy rains and healthy soils: keeping your soil on the farm

ST. JACOBS - It may be cold and snowing outside, but the Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA) is looking ahead toward warmer days as they host a free workshop to share ideas on what farmers can do to help protect their soils from heavy rains.

It will take place at the St. Jacobs Lions Hall at 31 Parkside Drive, St. Jacobs on Jan. 16 from 1 to 4pm.

This workshop will feature speakers from the GRCA and Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) as well as local producers, providing insight and practical information on how to build soil resilience and keep soil in place.

Topics include a recap of significant local rainfall events and their impacts, water quality trends in the Grand River and Lake Erie, improving soil resilience through best management practices, and resources available to help farmers manage heavy rainfalls.

Certified crop advisors can receive three continuing education units (CEUs) through participation in this workshop. To register, email or call Anne Loeffler at 1-866-900-4722 x2242. The event is organized by the GRCA, with support from the Great Lakes Agricultural Stewardship Initiative (GLASI).

Funding for GLASI is provided by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs through Growing Forward 2, a comprehensive federal-provincial-territorial initiative.
