Farmers know better than most that water is life, and that without water, it can be very difficult to bring forth life from the earth! At Shade of Miti farm, Rav Singh has an irrigation set-up that includes a solar panel-powered connection to a pond. She will describe how she developed her irrigation setup, and will also discuss considerations for irrigating using natural bodies of water. From a different vantage point on his farm, Scott Sigurdson - a 2022 Carrot Cache Innovation winner - will share his experience of investing in automation technology for irrigation, and how doing so has positively impacted his farm and relationship to water. Scott will also discuss what he has learned over the years about use of sprinklers, drip tape, and using well vs natural water sources for irrigation.
