Strategies for Strange Times: Join us each Friday for a one-hour virtual farmer meet-up1 of 3
Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
Field day attendees are surrounded by a lush stand of blooming oxeye sunflowers, also known as false sunflower, as they stand in one of Paul Mugge’s prairie strips on July 17 listening to Lydia English, of the prairie strips project at Iowa State University, discuss how Paul is using prairie strips on his farm near Sutherland.
Join the Tallgrass Prairie Center and Practical Farmers of Iowa for a native plant identification online course this summer. This course is designed for anyone who wants to improve their ability to identify native plants of the tallgrass prairie region, with a special focus on common farmland prairie plants. The course will emphasize the process of learning how to identify the plants, and will help attendees become more self-sufficient at plant identification through guided practice.
