Dry Farm Field Day at OSU Oak Creek Center

The drop-in style event  includes a 30-minute guided field tour at 5 p.m. Participants will see see dry farmed potatoes, tomatoes, dry beans, melons, and winter squash. The crops were only irrigated once, in May, since their planting.

The event is free, but registration is required.

“There will also be an opportunity to do side-by-side tastings of irrigated and dry farmed tomatoes and melons, visit with dry farmers and researchers, and learn about the various research projects engaging with the Dry Farming Collaborative,” according to the event website.
