Workshops and Events
Workshops and Tours from SCD
May 17 from 10- noon
Stanwood (Victoria Heights area near the Pilchuck Tree Farm)
This Stanwood farm has three horses, two donkeys and just about every example of the practices that will keep your horse's hooves healthy, your manure pile manageable and your pastures green! The landowner has worked with the Snohomish Conservation District to install compost bins, confinement areas and fencing, revive their pastures and restore their pond. Now they're working on a rain garden! Get ideas for your own summer projects and learn how to get them on the ground. You'll also see great examples of how you can provide habitat for wildlife while keeping your own animals happy and healthy.
