Plan to Attend an Upcoming ILF Field Day!

Fall Field Days

There are several Iowa Learning Farms field days coming up that focus on cover crops, nutrient management and soil health. We hope harvest is going well and will be winding down so you can attend a field day near you. There should be cover crops growing at the sites to see up-close!

The events are free and open to the public and include a complementary meal.
