Keyline® Practice: Soil Health and Drought-Resilience for 21st Century Farms and Landscapes, CSU Chico, October 3 – 5, 2014

Jackrabbit Farms and Sweet Grass Organics are proud to present Owen Hablutzel as he teaches about Keyline Design® as an approach to dealing with drought.

Join us for an important and informative three-day workshop focusing on the Keyline Design® process as a potential solution for dealing with drought. The workshop will include classroom as well as outdoor exercises and practicums—including a demonstration of the Yeomans’ Keyline sub-soiler.

Discover how Keyline Design® can help with the rapid creation of healthy and biologically-active topsoil

Improve the water-holding capacity of soil and improve drought resilience

Understand the wide variety of treatments possible using the Yeomans’ sub-soiling plow

Increase the yields and resilience of rangelands, pastures, and your whole operation

Plan for whole-landscape water harvesting for your property

Learn about Keyline treatments gaining cost sharing approval through the NRCS

The workshop is structured with two options:

• Option 1: October 3rd only, with a focus on an introduction to Keyline origins, the use of the Yeomans’ plow sub-soiling implement with Keyline Pattern Cultivation for a variety of treatments, such as drought- resilience, water-harvesting, and soil generation, and integrating NRCS-FOTG practices. ($175)

• Option 2: October 3 – 5. Includes learning the entire Keyline process and template for whole-farm planning; will integrate the Day One learning within a wider planning and management context that includes grazing, perennial polycultures and agroforestries, broad-acre landscape design, as well as learning low-cost GIS-mapping. Included will be a Yeomans’ plow field demonstration. ($450)
