In an effort to reach more farmers with education, Pierce and King Conservation District teamed up this past winter to provide a remote option for three education events held in Pierce County: cover cropping, successful grazing, and managing soil nutrient balances. Over 60 people joined the events remotely. All presentations were recorded and can be accessed on KCD’s website or youtube channel
