About the event

Join us for a day of informational and hands on soil health training!  We will start the day at the Spoon River Conference Center at 2500 E Jackson St, Macomb, IL 61455. Jim Isermann (Illinois Sustainable Ag) will introduce the audience to soil health and cover crops. At lunch time, we will traverse about 2 miles to Midwest Grass & Forage. After a catered lunch, participants will be able to visit with some vendors and will have the opportunity to see MGF's plots. MGF has approximately 70 plots featuring almost 40 species including brassicas, legumes, grasses and mixtures. 

At 3:30, there will be an optional session departing for WIU's Allison Research Farm to see their farm and learn about what they are doing in 2024!
