Slugs On The Go

On Tuesday, July 26 a group of 20 retirees gathered at the UCSC Hay Barn and hiked up the hill for a tour of the UCSC Farm. With an abundance of crops and the activity of a working farm in the background, special guests lectured and answered questions on dry farmed tomatoes, gopher management, no-till methodology, campus history, and the future of sustainable food systems. Click here to read more about this fun and informational outing.
