Dry Farming in Marin County & Tools and Implements for Small Scale Vegetable Farming - 3/10/05

Farming without irrigation, or "dry farming," was once widely used in Marin County. Today, with specialty agriculture growing in our semi-arid county landscape, the ability and skills needed to dry farm are valuable.

Speakers:

Jim Leap, farm manager for the Agroecology program at UC Santa Cruz, who has employed this technique in his farming operations.

David Little, who dry farms potatoes in Tomales.
