Dealing with Drainage at Farnham’s Folly

**This event takes place in Snohomish, WA. The address for this event will be sent in your confirmation email.

Join us on this tour of a Snohomish CD supervisor’s horse property (which he lovingly refers to as Farnham's Folly) to see and learn about drainage options, manure composting and mud management. You’ll even get to learn about the rain garden these landowners are installing to reduce runoff and provide habitat for pollinators. This farm tour will also cover reasons for incorporating native plants onto a horse property. Native plants can out-compete weeds, reduce mud and erosion, create shade and dust barriers and provide habitat for insect-eating birds (which means fewer flies, mosquitoes and other pests!)

BONUS: See a driving demo of a Clydesdale horse! This landowner does driving and after the tour he will give a brief explanation and cart driving demo for us.  

This farm tour is sponsored by the Snohomish Conservation District with funding from the Rose Foundation.
