Soil Crawl – Dryland Vegetables and Orchard

Saturday, July 9th from 10:00 am-4:00 pm

333 Kamut Ln, Big Sandy, 59520

Join us this summer on a Montana farm or ranch for a soil crawl! Come learn from innovative producers showcasing the practices and principles that help them generate healthy soil, resilient crops and animals, and good food! We’ll be out in the field looking at soil, exploring different aspects of individual operations, and learning how we can expand soil health across the state. Whether you’re a producer, urban gardener, or consumer, these crawls will offer something new for everyone to learn as well as opportunities to connect with like-minded folks!

NOTE: Our soil crawls last the better part of a day (10 am – 4 pm) with an hour break for lunch (provided). Please be advised that all crawls involve some physical exertion and outdoor activity regardless of weather conditions.

Dryland Vegetables and Orchard

10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Quinn Farm
(333 Kamut Ln, Big Sandy, MT)
Cost: $15 (scholarships available)

We will visit regenerative organic farmer Bob Quinn who will walk us through his diversified experimental dryland orchard and vegetable plots, and newly designed greenhouse. He will share how he’s successfully farmed in an arid climate. We will explore practices related to soil health and drought resistance, like heavy mulch and cover crops grazed down with animals.
