GTF has been hosting dry farming trials with the OSU Dry Farming Project since 2016 and expanded their dry farmed tomato production based on their successes. This field day will focus on dry farming of tomatoes and winter squash and include the following topics:
Dry farm tomato production basics (each participant will receive a copy of the UCSC DRY FARMED TOMATO GROWER GUIDE, and information on how that system might be adapted to Oregon) Dry farm winter squash production basics (handout on OSU research results) Dry farm site suitability assessment (handout)

If you would like to dine at the farmstead for dinner there is limited space, and RESERVATIONS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
