Farm Field Day at Historic Meyer Farm

A Farm Field Day will be held on September 3, 2021 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Grand Traverse County’s Meyer Farm — the future site of the Grand Traverse Conservation District’s Great Lakes Incubator Farm. The farm is located at 1091 Keystone Road, Traverse City, MI.

Topics include:

• Biochar production, use, and benefits
• Pollinator health and habitat
• Enhancing soil health
• Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP)
• USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) programs and resources
