About the Webinar

Interested in learning more about how to grow fruits and vegetables with little or no water in the Pacific Northwest? This session will cover site selection, dry farming tools and techniques for orchard and row crops, soil hydrological principals, and the power of seed-saving in dry farmed systems. Learn about the OSU Small Farms Dry Farming Demonstration and Participatory Research Project led by Amy Garrett (OSU Small Farms Instructor). Jacques Neukom (Neukom Family Farm), known for his dry farmed peaches and melons in Northern California, will share his experience producing a variety of crops using dry farming techniques all season long in a climate with long dry hot summers. Steve Peters (Seed Revolution Now & Organic Seed Alliance) will tell the story of the ‘Dark Star’ Zucchini developed with Dr. John Navazio and Bill Reynolds for dry farmed systems and how seed-saving can be a powerful tool for dry farmers.
