Thurston and Mason Conservation Districts are hosting a free “Pasture & Weed Management Workshop” on May 6, 2007 for horse and livestock owners. Topics to be addressed include pasture & weed management, rotational grazing, soil testing, compost and nutrient applications and other related issues. Presentations will be offered by Alayne Blickle, Program Director for Horses for Clean Water, Marty Chaney, the NRCS Olympia Area Agronomist and Brian Thompson, Thurston Conservation District’s Resource Specialist. This workshop will include both lecture and field components.
Workshop attendees will learn ways to improve pasture productivity and reduce invasive weeds while making farm management less stressful and healthier for themselves, their horses, and the environment.
