Join Synergia Ranch and Cruces Creatives’ Seeding Regenerative Agriculture Project for the first of two field days on orchard biodiversity!

At this Earth Day workshop, we’ll focus on building biodiversity in the Synergia Ranch orchard, starting from the ground up with beneficial soil microbes from Johnson-Su composting bioreactors. The basic agenda for the day is below:

• 09:45-12:00: Filling Johnson-Su bioreactors, sharing results from replications of Dr. Johnson’s research

12:00-13:00: Lunch

13:00-17:00: Inoculating orchard trees with Johnson-Su compost as part of a citizen-science experiment

17:00-17:30: Break

17:30: Dinner

What to wear/bring:

  • Work clothes and work boots
  • Sun protection
  • Water bottle
  • Gloves and goggles
  • Face mask (recommended for filling the bioreactors, which can be a dusty process)

This workshop will be followed by a May field day on hedgerow plantings (date coming shortly).

This is a free field day, but since space is limited, please preregister.

Thanks to funding from the McCune Charitable Foundation, the New Mexico Foundation, and the Nusenda Foundation, this field day includes three free meals: breakfast, lunch, and dinner, all prepared by the amazing chefs at Synergia Ranch.
