  • Making your own biochar with Philip Eisenbeis, diversified producer in Turner County
  • Introduction to Hugelkultur and Small-scale Composting with Chris Goldade of the South Dakota Soil Health Coalition

Kids are welcome too! The Pierre Master Gardeners and Andy Oxford, Soil Scientist with NRCS will provide engaging, entertaining, and informative activities for kids!

The Venner Farm, an organic grain farm and small vegetable production on the Oahe Reservoir North of Pierre is excited to host you! The event will be outdoors so dress accordingly. Event capacity is 30, so please register to reserve your place!
