Farm tour
Snohomish Conservation District will lead a tour at a Stanwood area farm with three horses and two donkeys on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. The tour is free and will cover just about every example of the best management practices that will keep your horse’s hooves healthy, your manure pile manageable and your pastures green.
The landowner has worked with the Conservation District to install compost bins, confinement areas and fences to revive pastures and restore a pond.
The tour is an opportunity to get ideas for your own summer projects.
Register online at farmtour-stanwood.eventbrite.com.
