Join NOFA-NY and Poughkeepsie Farm Project for an in-depth look into designing and improving farm irrigation and infrastructure to support the farm, make work easier, grow better crops, and keep people safe! We will begin the day with a tour of the farm’s irrigation system, examining both overhead and drip options and how to design and fine tune farm irrigation systems. The morning will end with a discussion of how water quality affects food safety, and what steps you can take to manage your farm’s agricultural water. After lunch, we will continue talking infrastructure and management during a tour of their high tunnels. The day will conclude with farmer-to-farmer discussions about infrastructure investments and planning for upgrades.
