Dale and Carmene Pangrac will host a composting field day on their organic, grass-based dairy on Thursday, Sept. 12. The Pangracs are working to rebuild the microbial populations in their pasture and row crop soils by using aerobic, composting methods. Clifford Johnson of Paynesville, Minn., will also present at the field day about his many years of composting, compost tea brewing and extracting, and how to best apply microbes to crops.

Join us for an exciting day of building and exploring the soil microbial universe. To learn more about the composting methods being showcased, watch this YouTube video of Oluf Johnson (Clifford's father) describing their setup.

This event will include a build-your-own-sandwich lunch (free-will donations accepted).

For more information and to RSVP by Sept. 9th, contact LSP's Shona Snater at 507-523-3366 or via e-mail.
