5:30 – 8:30 Farmer Show and Tell hosted by Tim Hammerich, Future of Agriculture Podcast
During this event, where we’ll have food and a cash bar, attendees can come prepared with a few photos (on a jmp drive) or information about something they are doing on their farm that they want to share. This is an opportunity to talk about something you’ve tried, get feedback on something that “almost” worked or an approach that didn’t work where you learned a valuable lesson. As you drive to Fargo, think of something you may want to share with this group or questions that you may want to ask. This informal session, guided by Tim Hammerich, host of the Future of Agriculture Podcast and North Dakota’s own Soil Sense Podcast, will be a creative brainstorming time to get ideas flowing and conversations going over the next couple days of the DIRT Workshop.
Pre-registration check in is also available from 5:00 – 5:30 and during this informal social event
