Understanding irrigation tools and techniques will help you reduce heat and water stress on your plants, better deliver nutrients to roots, and maximize crop yields.
During this CRAFT workshop for aspiring and beginning farmers, we’ll discuss the essentials of crop irrigation and you’ll participate in a hands-on installation of the irrigation system for a new high tunnel at the Black Urban Gardeners & Farmers (BUGS) of Pittsburgh Co-op. We will also discuss how different producers manage their water sources, and how you can get started irrigating your own crops.
This is a CRAFT workshop. CRAFT workshops are designed for beginning and aspiring farmers, but all are welcome.
