Water, Water Everywhere! Agricultural Water Risk Assessment and Best Practices

June 17 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Piedmont Environmental Council’s Community Farm, 39990 Howsers Branch Drive Dulles, VA 20105 + Google Map

This session will focus on water! Without water there would be no fresh produce. At the same time, pathogens are easily spread through water use. Knowing how to assess and manage this vital resource is critical to reducing produce safety risks. We will conduct a water system assessment and discuss water quality requirements, including potential sources of contamination and practical strategies to reduce risks. We will discuss how to maintain and monitor water quality and review water testing and treatment options, demonstrate taking a water sample, and learn about different irrigation systems. We will hear from irrigation expert David Giusti. This workshop is useful for established farmers and valuable for beginning farmers looking to make food-safety compliant choices.
