Virtual: Live Harvester Demonstration and Q&A
- This event has passed.
July 21, 2020 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm PDTFREE
If you’re curious to learn more about how grain is grown and carried to market, log on for this online event!
Live from Santa Ynez, California, Nate Gonzales-Siemens, Farm Manager at our California Organic Center, will be joined by Clayton Garland of Gusford Ranch to demonstrate operation of a ’69 grain harvester in a field of red wheat. Meanwhile, self-proclaimed “grain nerd” Leyna Lightman will host and take discussion topics. This event is a great way for new and experienced farmers, as well as anyone who cares about small-scale grain, to connect and learn.
In advance of this demonstration, the hosts have harvested a crop of oats from the California Organic Center. When you register for the live harvest on July 21st, they’ll send you exclusive videos documenting the Rodale Institute harvest.
