The location of the field day is on a property near Monegeetta. The focus of this evening will be how to increase soil moisture by using the contours on your property. This property has also fenced the waterway/riparian zone in a novel way to have the fence more resilient to flood damage. Everyone is welcome to come along and learn from each other and discuss how your property is progressing thru the season.
