|Field trip to Agrecol: Rob explaining the seed collection process to Rachel and Arik.|
There was a bit of concern during the meeting as to residual pesticide chemicals still in the field from last year's soybean crop and their affect on these plantings. So we shuttled off some soil samples for testing and just heard back last week: test plants are growing so the soil is good -- our project is a go!
We couldn't be more excited about our partnership with Agrecol and all the ways in which this prairie will enhance the biodiversity of the Farm! We will keep you posted on how the planting goes!
