Benefits of Companion Planting & Value-Added Enterprises at Walker Homestead

RSVPs appreciated for refreshments following the event by July 28.

At this field day, Kristy and Bob will walk us through their on-farm research project investigating the benefits of companion planting alongside their vineyards as a solution for pest management. We’ll learn about their various enterprises and how they integrate agritourism at the homestead. Light refreshments will be provided, and wine for tasting.

The Farm:

Kristy and Bob Walker started Walker Homestead near Iowa City, Iowa, in 2013, which includes an organic market garden, an orchard and vineyard, pasture and crop ground and a small venue. They’re hoping to add winter wheat to their crop ground.

Topics:

  • Companion flower planting
  • Value-added enterprises
  • Agritourism
