GET THE DIRT ON SOIL HEALTH WORKSHOP

 
The Grey Wooded Forage Association is proud to partner with the Counties of Wetaskiwin, Clearwater, and Mountain View on the presentation of a series of soil workshops in west central Alberta!

We have run the "Get the Dirt on Soil Health and Carbon” workshops earlier in the year with resounding success and participant response.

 

Previous participants had come away with a much greater understanding of the soil cycles that affect their own land and how to have a positive impact to change in their soil.
 
 

Dr. Kris Nichols  delivers a presentation in a format where all levels of soil managers will understand and learn. In my opinion, if time restricted you from attending many extension activities, then one of these would get my high recommendation. It could be the most important one you attend all year!


 Annual Tours
 
West County Ag Tour (WCAT) 
 
The West Country Agricultural Tour is a summer tour of various agricultural and ag-related enterprises in Clearwater County. Traveling in coach bus comfort for a nominal charge our agricultural "tourists” enjoy a day of learning, camaraderie and food.


Cattlemen's Day 

The annual Cattlemen’s Day is a tribute to the hard working cattle producers in Clearwater County. Over 100 producers attend the gathering which features a great roast beef lunch. Cattlemen's Day is proud to feature quality speakers that present topics of significant interest to the local producer. A trade show accompanies this event featuring agencies and businesses with an interest in agriculture.
 

Celebrating Our Success
 
A Landcare member had an idea to bring people together to hear short stories about environmental stewardship and to provide plenty of social time to talk informally. The idea became a celebration in the fall of 2011 and was delivered under the name "Celebrating our Success". Look at the video clip to see some of the celebration.
