Cambridge Winery Tour and Vineyard Management Field Day
October 23 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Vineyards contend with many competitors: birds and pests, disease and drought, people and the local ecosystem. This tour will be a gathering of the minds to brainstorm about new possibilities and to share experiences of success and failure.
There will be a presentation by a Savanna Institute Technical Service Provider to talk about alley cropping, the resources available, what type of crops work best in vineyard settings, and how these practices can effect water quality. We will then tour the vineyard for a collective discussion about alley cropping possibilities for soil carbon and water retention, followed by a discussion of vineyard pest management. The day will end with an optional wine tasting and social hour.
This event is free, but the wine tasting is $17 (includes cheese, crackers, and selected wines).
