Benefits of Companion Planting & Value-Added Enterprises at Walker Homestead
Sunday, Aug. 1 | 10 a.m.-Noon
RSVPs appreciated for refreshments following the event by July 28.
At this field day, Kristy and Bob will walk us through their on-farm research project investigating the benefits of companion planting alongside their vineyards as a solution for pest management. We’ll learn about their various enterprises and how they integrate agritourism at the homestead. Light refreshments will be provided, and wine for tasting.
Kristy and Bob Walker started Walker Homestead near Iowa City, Iowa, in 2013, which includes an organic market garden, an orchard and vineyard, pasture and crop ground and a small venue. They’re hoping to add winter wheat to their crop ground.
