      EVENT DETAILS
      Irrigation Design

      Irrigation can be a critical part of your growing strategy no matter what the size of your farm or homestead. Join members of the Living Web Farm staff as we host a soup-to-nuts comprehensive workshop on best practices in irrigation design, covering the simplest DIY schemes to a range of more technical approaches. LWF’s Director Patryk Battle, Stone & Spade,
      owner John Henry Nelson, Energy and Resource Coodinator Richard Freudenberger, and Biochar Facility Manager Dan Hettinger will alternately run the gamut, covering finite water management, flood irrigation, in-ground and gravity storage, liquid feeds, injectors and other
      aspects of fertigation.

      During the workshop we’ll explore drip line irrigation techniques and best choices in pump designs, along with a discussion of supply piping, foot valves, and the correlation between head, pressure, flow and the water source or pump itself. The class will also address basic portable pump engine maintenance and proper fuel conditioning for trouble-free service during the critical times.

      And we’ll take a look at low-impact alternatives as well, from DIY human-powered pumps to the enigmatic ram pump, while sharing various low tech and alternative methods for pumping and storing irrigation water such as gravity storage and options in renewable power sources. If irrigation is something you’ve always wanted to know more about, mark your
      calendars for this water-centric event!
